Kevin Porter Jr. Reaches Plea Deal in Domestic Violence Case; Opportunity to Clear Record

In a recent update on the legal proceedings involving former Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr., it has been reported that he has reached a plea deal related to the domestic violence charges earlier filed against him. The charges stemmed from an alleged attack on his then-girlfriend, former WNBA player Kysre Gondrezick, earlier this year.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Porter Jr. has accepted charges of third-degree assault and second-degree harassment. The plea deal includes a provision that, upon successful completion of a court-ordered program, he will have the opportunity to withdraw his plea after a year.

Porter Jr.’s legal team issued a statement expressing that this resolution allows him to move forward without any criminal record, emphasizing that the incident involved false felony allegations and misinformation.

“The resolution will allow Mr. Porter to put this incident, which involved false felony allegations and false facts, behind him with no criminal record and move forward,” stated Porter’s lawyers.

The 30th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, Kevin Porter Jr. began his career with the Cleveland Cavaliers before a trade to the Houston Rockets. Following this development, he was subsequently traded to the OKC Thunder, who waived him shortly after finalizing the deal.
