Columbus Short Sentenced To 30 Days In Jail
Former Scandal actor Columbus Short continues to live the life of struggle. Superhead’s estranged husband was in court yesterday and the judge hit him with a 30-day jail sentence for violating his probation.
The ex “Scandal” star was in court Wednesday for a progress report where the judge handed down the jail sentence, plus 6 months in a residential drug treatment program.
Prosecutors said Short was violating his probation from a 2014 assault case by continuing to smoke marijuana — testing showed his THC levels were increasing weekly. They also say he’s done ZERO hours of community service.
Short tried playing the sympathy card — his lawyer informed the judge Short’s sister died of heart failure last week. It didn’t work and ultimately, Short apologized.
He’d already been in custody for 6 days, and was immediately taken back to jail to do 24 more.
We sincerely hope Short gets the help he needs.
