In March, Jodie Sweetin’s ex-fiancé, Justin Hodak, was busted by the cops three times in just 9 days for continually violating a restraining order she took out against him. Jodie got a restraining order against the mess who would’ve been her fourth husband after he showed up to her house with a gun and threatened to shoot himself in front of her. Justin isn’t allowed to own a gun since he’s a convicted felon. He was charged with a bunch of shit like possession of a deadly weapon, falsifying evidence by threatening a witness with force or implied force and stalking. Entertainment Tonight says that Justin plead “no contest” to the dead weapon charge and the threatening a witness charge. Both are felonies. Stephanie Tanner doesn’t have to worry about him violating the restraining order again, because it’ll be a little hard for him to show up to her house when he’s locked in a jail cell.
During a court appearance in Van Nuys, CA on Friday, the judge hit Justin with a suspended sentence of 6 years and 8 months in state prison. Since he agreed to a plea deal, prosecutors dropped the other charges. Justin will also be on probation for 5 years and he must finish a 52-week domestic violence treatment program. The restraining order that Jodie has against Justin will stay in place for 5 years and he’s also not allowed to release any pictures or videos he has of her. Bless that judge for throwing down that last rule, because I will never be ready for a Jodie Sweetin sex tape titled How Nude!
TMZ says that the judge told Justin that he only has to serve 120 days in L.A. County Jail and he gets credit for 56 days he’s already served. If he messes up (like getting caught with a gun again), he could be sent to state prison to serve that 6 plus years sentence.
Well, at least Stephanie Tanner didn’t marry this one because then she’d be well on her way to becoming a four-time divorcee at the age of 35. (I shouldn’t say that like it’s a bad thing since one of my relationship idols, Erica Kane, was married five times before turning 40.) But the next time Jodie is thinking about getting engaged, she should consult the expert on everything, Kimmy Gibbler, first. Although, Kimmy would probably tell her the same thing that anyone else would, which is, “Don’t marry the bitch unless his born name is either Mr. Bear or Harry Takayama, or if you’re really desperate, Cosmo the Dog.”
