Yahoo CEO's brother gets probation in beating case
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The brother of Yahoo chief executive officer (CEO) Marissa Mayer has been sentenced to three years of probation following his arrest for suspicion of beating his former girlfriend.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that 34-year-old Mason Mayer pleaded guilty on Friday to a reduced charge of misdemeanour false imprisonment under a plea deal with San Francisco prosecutors.
Mayer was arrested in November and charged with three felonies - assault, false imprisonment and domestic violence.
Prosecutors say they agreed to the plea bargain partly to allow Mayer's former girlfriend to avoid the stress of a trial.
