Duane Peters Pleads Guilty in Domestic Violence Case

Duane Peters pleaded guilty yesterday to a domestic violence charge involving a run-in with his live-in girlfriend at their Long Beach home. Superior Court Judge Laura Laesecke immediately sentenced Peters, 52, to a one-year domestic violence counseling program, 60 days of community service and five years of probation.

Sounds like he got off pretty light, though he was also ordered to stay away from the woman for 10 years, according to the District Attorney's Office. Peters originally entered a plea of not guilty when he was charged with one felony count of willful infliction of corporal injury in late February. Neighbors intervened after hearing a commotion shortly before midnight Feb. 7 and restrained Peters until police arrived. The woman suffered moderate injuries, according to authorities.
