Corey Lewandowski, a former top adviser to President Donald Trump, has avoided a misdemeanor battery charge in connection with alleged unwanted sexual advances.
In exchange for a $1,000 fine, 50 hours of community service, and spending 8 hours on impulse control counseling, Nevada prosecutors would not require an admission of guilt and, upon completion of the terms, would drop the charge, Politico reported.
"A misdemeanor case was filed, but we are pleased to say that the matter has been resolved," Lewandowski lawyers David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld said in a statement. "The resolution did not require any admissions by Mr. Lewandowski. The Court set conditions that Mr. Lewandowski will fulfill and the case will ultimately be dismissed."
The charge stemmed from an accusation by Trashelle Odom that Lewandowski repeatedly touched her and used suggestive language during a 2021 charity event in Las Vegas. She also said he subsequently "stalked" her through the outlet, per the outlet.
