Haynesworth gets 160 hours of community service in plea deal

Albert Haynesworth opted to take an expedited route in dealing with charges of sexual abuse.

The New England Patriots defensive tackle pleaded no contest on Monday to simple assault with regards to an incident at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., according to WJLA-TV. He must serve 160 hours of community service.

The news comes after Haynesworth's D.C. Superior Court date was moved up one day, a signal a plea deal was in the works.

Haynesworth was accused of groping the breast of a waitress while having drinks with friends last February. The 30-year-old former All-Pro had denied wrongdoing.

Haynesworth was traded to the New England Patriots last month from the Washington Redskins.
