Rob Morrison Pleads Guilty, Will Enter Violence Education Program

Rob Morrison, who resigned from WCBS/Channel 2 following his arrest for allegedly choking his wife, has pleaded guilty to two out of three charges. Morrison plead guilty to second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct, but continued to claim that he didn’t choke his wife, CBS MoneyWatch anchor, Ashley Morrison.

Appearing in court earlier this week, Morrison declined to enter a plea for the felony strangulation charge he is facing, but agreed to enter a Family Violence Education Program, according to the Darien Times.

The Darien Times and Morrison have had a rocky relationship. In early May, he called the paper and went on an epic rant about their coverage of his arrest, so let’s hope this latest report results in no further phone calls.

Morrison’s next court date will be Wednesday, Aug. 14.
