Television actor Sasha Mitchell was ordered Tuesday to serve 180 days in Ventura County Jail for violating the terms of his probation and was immediately taken into custody.
Municipal Court Judge Bruce Clark ruled that Mitchell acted unlawfully when he moved to Tennessee earlier this year. Clark revoked Mitchell's probation and remanded him to jail.
The 29-year-old actor and kick boxer pleaded no contest to misdemeanor spousal abuse last year for beating his pregnant wife when they lived in Thousand Oaks.
Mitchell, a former actor on the TV show "Step by Step," was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to attend counseling sessions for abusers.
