(Radio.com) Billy Currington has entered a plea of no contest in an elder abuse charge that was filed in April. Currington was charged with Making Terroristic Threats and Abuse of an Elder Person for an altercation he had on April 15.

A press release from the District Attorney's office at the Eastern Judicial Circuit of Georgia states that Currington "entered a plea of No Contest under the First Offender Act to the charge of Elder Abuse before Chatham County Superior Court Judge Penny Haas‐ Freesemann."

As part of the no contest plea, the State agreed to not prosecute Currington for the charge of Terroristic Threats. Instead, Currington will face five years of probation, pay a $1000 fine, promise no contact with the parties involved in the incident, and attend anger management classes.

Radio.com previously spoke with Daniel Baxter, Public Information Officer at the Office of the District Attorney, about the incidents. "The case will be handled like any other case that comes into the District Attorney's office," he said. "There's nothing special about, nor will there be any favoritism. It will be handled like any other case." more on this story
