According to the website, Hodak appeared in court in Van Nuys, California, and pleaded “no contest” to two charges: possession of a deadly weapon and falsifying evidence by threatening a witness with force or implied force. He was found guilty on both charges and ordered to serve six years and eight months behind bars. The rest of the charges against Hodak were dismissed due to the plea deal, the website says.

After serving his sentence, Hodak will be on probation for five years, ET reports. He will be required to complete a 52-week domestic violence program, obey a protective order and refrain from posting pictures or videos of Sweetin.

Back in March, Hodak was arrested three times within a nine-day period.
