Katt Williams Reaches Plea Deal in Camera Robbery Case

Comedian/actor receives three years of probation in exchange for no-contest plea

Katt Williams can scratch one legal entanglement off of his list.

Comedian Williams reached a plea deal in a long-running case against him on Monday, pleading no contest to a felony count of second-degree robbery, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said.

In exchange for the plea, Williams was sentenced to three years of formal probation. The comedian was also ordered by a judge to complete 54 weeks of anger management classes.

Monday’s plea deal stems from a Sept. 2014 incident, during which Williams stole a camera from a female photographer in Beverly Hills.

Former rap kingpin Marion “Suge” Knight, who’s currently awaiting trial on a murder charge, has also been charged in relation to the incident, though his case is currently pending.

Williams and Knight pleaded not guilty during an Oct. 2015 arraignment.

TheWrap has reached out to Williams’ spokesperson for comment on the plea deal.
