It’s been a nightmare year for Matthew Barnaby, but the silver lining is that he won’t have to do jail time after pleading guilty to four charges including driving while intoxicated. The Buffalo News reports that Barnaby must complete 100 hours of community service, will have his license revoked for one year and will receive counseling. He also faces the possibility of deportation and lost his job as an ESPN analyst.

Barnaby’s earlier legal issues came after a domestic disturbance in May, which ended up requiring 500 hours of community service and anger management courses.

He reportedly hired an attorney for potential hearings related to his possible deportation, so while his situation is mostly resolved, things aren’t completely settled yet.

    I can’t believe the so-called “sports leader” fired him.

    What if Canada doesn’t want to take him back?
