(PASADENA, Calif.) — Marston Hefner, the 21-year-old son of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, pleaded no contest in a Pasadena, Calif., courthouse Tuesday, in the wake of a domestic violence arrest last month.
The New York Daily News reports Hefner was arrested inside his Pasadena apartment on Feb. 12, after an altercation that left his 2011 Playmate of the Year girlfriend Claire Sinclair bruised and her laptop smashed.
Hefner was sentenced to a 52-week domestic violence program and must undergo periodic progress reports with the court over the next three years.
