Ahman Green reaches plea deal in child abuse case

BROWN COUNTY, Wis. (WFRV) - Former Green Bay Packers player Ahman Green reached a plea deal in a child abuse case involving his 15-year-old daughter.

Green was in Brown County Court Thursday afternoon where he entered an Alford plea.

An Alford plea is when a defendant says he's innocent but realizes there is enough evidence to convict him.

Green was convicted of one count of Disorderly Conduct and one count of Criminal Damage to Property. The previous charge of Child Abuse-Intentionally Cause Harm was eliminated and amended to a Criminal Damage to Property charge.

He was sentenced to 18 months probation and fined hundreds of dollars.

He must also write a letter of apology to his daughter and take parenting classes.

Green was arrested after a dispute with her over household chores last summer.

Ahman Green responded to the sentence in a statement obtained by our news affiliate in Green Bay, WFRV. See the statement below:
