As Us reported back in March, the pharmaceutical executive, 46, rejected a plea deal that would have seen him plead guilty to a harassment violation and attend an anger management program.

Hoppy, who shares 6-year-old daughter Brynn with the Real Housewives of New York City star, was arrested on January 27 after he allegedly contacted Frankel “numerous times via email and FaceTime, and approached [the] victim making verbal threats,” an NYPD spokesperson confirmed to Us at the time.

Frankel was later granted a restraining order against her ex, who she divorced in 2016 after six years of marriage and a bitter four-year-long divorce court battle.

Hoppy has denied the charges, with his attorney at the time, Robert C. Gottlieb, telling Us earlier this year, “There are no words to express how saddened Mr. Hoppy is over his ex-wife’s unjustified actions. His only concern is his daughter and he intends to vigorously fight these false charges. We fully intend to do our talking in the courtroom.”
