Reports say Bryan's sentence includes conditions that he must partake in a batterer intervention program and make no contact with the victim.
In October, Bryan was facing charges of strangulation, fourth-degree assault, and interfering with making a report, all stemming from a domestic incident in which he allegedly strangled his 27-year-old girlfriend. In total, six charges were dismissed in the case.
In a statement made to media, the Lane County District Attorney said: "While Mr. Bryan was charged with additional crimes, including two class C felonies, it is in the interest of closure for the victim and in recognition of the backlog of cases we have due to COVID restrictions that make me believe this resolution is in the interest of justice."
