Dennis Rodman pleaded no contest to misdemeanor spousal battery Tuesday.
The former basketball player was sentenced to one year of domestic violence counseling and three years probation, the Associated Press reports. He must also complete 45 days of community service – specifically physical labor like highway cleanup or graffiti removal.
Rodman, 47, was arrested at an L.A. hotel in April, when a woman reported that he'd struck her during a disagreement.
Days later, the ex-NBA star entered into an outpatient rehab facility.
"His life has not been going smoothly for the last few months," his manager, Darren Prince, told PEOPLE at the time – adding that Rodman has been under stress since his divorce from third wife Michelle Moyer. "He has not been able to see his kids. And he has been drinking too much."

THREATENED: Angelina Jolie's work to protect an area of Cambodian land is reportedly being threatened by an influx of settlers. The land, located in northwest Cambodia, is forestland that a conservation group funded by the actress hopes to protect, and once belonged to the Khmer Rogue regime, which ruled the country in the 1970s. Jolie has donated $1.5 million to the conservation efforts, but some 1,000 people have recently settled in the area, cutting down the forest to grow crops. "The new settlers will attract more people to the area," a spokesman for the conservation group tells the Associated Press. "Any expansion of new settlement will affect our conservation work."

She waved at fans as Justin signed autographs, and the pair was gone before noon.
