Rod Stewart and his son pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of simple battery in their New Year's Eve 2019 case in Palm Beach, Florida.
Rod and his son Sean were accused of attacking a security guard after they were refused access to a private event. The plea agreement means neither of them will serve jail time, pay fines or be placed on probation. The judge withheld adjudication, meaning neither Rod nor his son have been formally convicted.
Stewart family lawyer, Guy Fronstin, issued a statement saying, "No one was injured in the incident and a jury did not find Sir Rod Stewart guilty of the accusation. Instead, Sir Rod Stewart decided to enter a plea to avoid the inconvenience and unnecessary burden on the court and the public that a high-profile proceeding would cause."
