FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Kasey Kahl, a former contestant on TV’s “The Bachelorette,” has been sentenced to three years of probation and community service in connection with a fight outside a California bar.

The Fresno Bee reports Kahl was sentenced Tuesday in a Fresno County courtroom.

The 30-year-old Kahl pleaded no contest to a felony assault charge in March as part of a plea deal that saw another assault charge dropped. He was accused of breaking a man’s nose and hitting the man’s girlfriend during a fight in the early morning hours of Jan. 15, 2012, at Club Habanos in Fresno.

Kahl’s lawyer, Gerald Schwab, says Kahl could get the charge expunged if he follows the sentencing rules.
