Pitcher's Wife Strikes Deal in Battery Case

September 19, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Actress Tawny Kitaen agreed Wednesday to a plea bargain on spousal abuse and battery charges alleging that she attacked her husband, Cleveland Indians pitcher Chuck Finley.

Under the deal, Kitaen did not admit guilt but agreed to enter a spousal-battery counseling program. If she completes the program and meets other conditions of the deal, the charges eventually could be dropped.

Kitaen, 40, also must avoid contact with her husband, stay away from their Newport Beach home and return to court in December for a progress report.
