JERSEY Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro admitted to a judge he violated his parole but managed to avoid jail time.
Ronnie was currently on probation for his 2019 arrest for alleged domestic violence involving his ex, Jenn Harley who is also the mother of his daughter Ariana, 3.
But an incident involving his fiancé Saffire Matos which led to his arrest in April meant he violated his probation.
Ronnie faced court on Friday over the incident with Saffire and potentially faced 30 days jail time.
Instead, the judge let the reality star walk free and instead ordered him to take 26 parenting classes, according to TMZ.
The judge also placed him under a three-year protective order where he is prohibited from harassing or intimidating Saffire.
The court acknowledged he recently completed a rehab program in Florida, thereby allowing him to skip jail time.
Ronnie's attorney, Scott Leemon, told The Sun in an exclusive statement his client was pleased with the result and was committed to focusing on his family.
“We are happy that the court was satisfied with Ronnie’s completion of an in-patient and an Intensive Outpatient Program," he said.
"This has satisfied the violation of probation. It is important to highlight that no new charges were filed based upon his arrest.
"Ronnie has learned a lot through this process about himself and is now happily sober for over 5 months.
"He has decided to voluntarily continue with his counseling. As we stated in April, Ronnie’s focus right now is on his family and being the best he can be to them.”
Another court date was set for March 17, but Ronnie does not have
Ronnie announced he was stepping away from Jersey Shore: Family Vacation in May, following the arrest for domestic violence in the incident involving Saffire.
In a statement he posted to Instagram, the 35-year-old wrote: "After talking to the team at MTV, we have mutually agreed that I will step away from the show while I seek medical treatment for mental health issues that I've ignored too long.
"My number one goal now is facing my struggles head on."
After the arrest, Saffire released a statement, writing: "Ronnie and I are fine. There is a lot of misleading information floating around out there.
"With anybody who reached out with concern I appreciate it with all my heart, but everything that's being portrayed out there are not facts."
She continued: "I don't think it's fair that people are using false accusations to gain attention. Please leave Ron and I alone. You don't know what someone is going through at the end of the day."
Ronnie proposed to Saffire, 30, in June.
Fans will also remember his tumultuous relationship with Jersey Shore ex, Sammi Giancolo.
The brunette beauty left the show after a few seasons and has refused to even be in the same room as Ronnie.
