Raising Sextuplets dad Bryan Masche will get to stay out of jail as long as he remains out of trouble going forward.
Masche pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor violence charges -- threatening and intimidating as well as disorderly conduct -- in Arizona Municipal Court on Thursday in connection with his September 11 arrest for a domestic violence incident with his wife and father-in-law, E! News reported.
However due to a plea deal, his sentencing as been deferred and the charges will be dropped if Masche completes domestic violence counseling, takes 10 hours of parenting classes, and doesn't break the law again in the next 12 months.
"If he doesn't complete successfully we will go ahead and sentence him on both counts," a court official told E! News.
Masche's family was visiting his wife Jennifer's parents in Camp Verde, AZ when the couple reportedly got into a disagreement over where their six children were going to travel and spend the afternoon.
What started out as a verbal argument quickly turned physical and continued to escalate as Masche allegedly got more aggressive and resisted arrest before eventually calming down when officers threatened to taser him.
