The son of legendary Playboy Enterprises founder Hugh Hefner, Marston, was sentenced this week in a domestic abuse case in which he is said to have physically beaten his girlfriend in their Pasadena home. Marston Hefner pleaded "No Contest," to charges of corporeal injury on a spouse or cohabitant following an arrest on February 12th. Hefner reportedly was facing up to one and a half years in a jail for the incident, but was instead sentenced to a 52-week domestic violence class. Hefner was also ordered to stay away from his girlfriend, former Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair, for three years. Hefner had also been facing one count of vandalism for destroying Sinclair's laptop computer during the incident, but that charge was dropped. Marston is Hugh Hefner's son from his second marriage, to former Playboy Playmate of the Year Kimberly Conrad, and is just 21 years old.

Domestic abuse is defined as any abuse, physical or otherwise, that is committed against a spouse, girlfriend, partner who shares a home with you, a person who was formerly romantically involved with you, or a person with whom you have had a child. While that definition covers a large group of people and various crimes, the vast majority of domestic violence or abuse crimes are felony criminal offenses that are capable of landing you in jail or even prison. One thing that many people do not know about domestic abuse cases is that even if the alleged victim decides not to press charges, if investigators in the case feel that a crime has been committed, you can still be charged with a domestic violence crime.
