As part of La Russa’s sentencing, he was ordered to spend one day in jail — though La Russa will be allowed to serve it via home confinement, according to his attorney, Larry Kazan.
Kazan also said La Russa will pay a $1,300 fine and do 20 hours of community service as part of his sentencing.
“Mr. La Russa knows he made a mistake last February and deeply regrets it,” Kazan said in a statement. “He is embarrassed and concerned. He knows what he did was wrong.”
Kazan added, “I am glad this matter is now behind Mr. La Russa from a legal point of view. In my dealings with him, he has always been a straightforward, sincere man who knows he alone brought this on himself.”
