In 2019, Broner pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge after he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at an Ohio club the year before. He was sentenced to probation and ordered to pay the woman $830,000.
In March 2021, the boxer missed a probation hearing. As punishment, a judge extended his probation until April 2022 and ordered him to attend an intensive outpatient treatment program.
Broner never showed up to the treatment program, which led to a warrant being issued for his arrest. For violating his probation, Broner could face up to six months in jail or additional restrictions.
