Rep. Boebert's ex-husband pleads guilty

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert's (R-CO) ex-husband has just pled guilty to reckless endangerment charges. 

This is according to a new report from ABC News.

Per the outlet:

The ex-husband of U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment Wednesday after separate altercations with his ex-wife at a local restaurant and their son at home earlier this year, according to online court documents.

It appears that the 43-year-old Jayson Boebert has pled guilty as part of a plea deal. There will be more on this in a moment.


The Daily Mail provides the details of the two altercations that took place, earlier this year.

Per the outlet:

The first was involved claims of domestic violence at a restaurant in Silt, where the 37-year-old congresswoman denied punching him in the face after he made 'lewd' advances. The second was when he allegedly assaulted the teenage boy in a fight over laundry at their home.

The teenage boy is their 18-year-old son, Tyler. The Daily Mail goes on to report that, after these incidents, Lauren Boebert sought a restraining order, which she would eventually ask to be removed.

The outlet reports:

Rep. Boebert - who became a grandmother at 36 - had asked for a restraining order to be be placed on Jayson after the altercations in order to protect her children. But she later wanted it dropped after they came to a 'strict agreement'.

The Daily Mail notes that both Tyler and Lauren have each been dealing with their own scandals. Tyler, for instance, is awaiting trial after being arrested for shoplifting. And, Lauren, the reader will likely remember, was recently thrown out of a movie theater for her actions.

The plea deal

Following this incident, Jayson Boebert was hit with a number of charges, including reckless endangerment, prohibited use of a weapon, harassment, and third-degree assault.

Now, however, as part of a plea deal that Boebert has reached with prosecutors, the latter three charges - prohibited use of a weapon, harassment, and third-degree assault - have all been dropped, leaving the reckless endangerment charge.

Not only did Boebert get these three charges dropped as part of the plea deal, but he has also avoided jail time.

For the reckless endangerment charge, he could have faced a maximum prison sentence of 120 days and a maximum fine of $750. But he avoided both. Instead, he paid a $40 fine and he has agreed to six months of unsupervised probation.

At the time of this writing, neither Lauren nor Jayson has released a statement regarding the settlement.
