‘Jersey Shore’s’ Ronnie To Avoid Criminal Record In 2009 Punch-Out

TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP)  — A lawyer for “Jersey Shore” cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has told a judge his client will apply to a pretrial intervention program in an assault case.

Pretrial intervention allows a defendant to avoid a criminal record if he stays out of trouble.

The 25-year-old reality show star from New York City was charged after a September 2009 fight in which he knocked another man unconscious outside a Seaside Heights, N.J., nightclub. The fight was shown during the MTV show’s first season.

Assistant Ocean County prosecutor Hillary Bryce said Monday the application frees Ortiz-Magro to travel to Italy next month for taping of the show’s next season.

Bryce tells the Asbury Park Press newspaper Ortiz-Magro will be required to appear in state Superior Court in June to learn if he’s been accepted into the program.

    Jersey Shore, very stupid show. Party at the Hard Rock cafe is a little better, but too much emphasis focus on Sharon & Matt instead of the Hot Chicks in wet bikinis..
