The Fort Bend County District Attorney’s office says gospel singer James Fortune has entered a guilty plea for felony domestic violence.
Prosecutors say he was sentenced to 10 years in prison Tuesday but it was suspended for five years while he is under the supervision of the court.
Fortune will also have to perform 170 hours of community service according to District Attorney John Healey.
Assistant District Attorney Alex Folet says this is related to Fortune’s assault on his wife back in 2014.
Part of the agreement is to stay away from his wife and he cannot go within within 200 feet of her place of employment, her home or her person.
If Fortune violates these rules the judge in the case has the right to revoke his probation.
Alex Foley is the assistant district attorney who handled the case.
