The son of Virginia congressman Jim Moran pleaded guilty to simple assault for an attack on his girlfriend earlier this month.
Patrick Moran made headlines back in October when he was caught on camera appearing to tell a man how to commit voter fraud.
Then on December first, police charged him with assault after getting into a fight with his girlfriend outside a D.C. bar.
Patrick Moran was sentenced to probation, domestic violence classes and community service.
A spokesperson for Congressman Jim Moran released a statement, saying in part, "as was stated in court by both his son, Patrick and his girlfriend Kelly, the situation was an accident.
They are both very embarrassed by the situation which involved drinking and they are looking to move past it, and ask for their privacy to be respected."
