After nearly a year, Jason Hoppy has reached a conclusion to his most recent legal battle with ex Bethenny Frankel.
In court on Monday, he agreed to a plea deal involving an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal. In accordance with the ACD, Hoppy must comply with Frankel’s order of protection for six months and, if he obeys all laws, the case will be dismissed. Per Frankel’s order of protection, Hoppy must stay away from her home and place of business and have no communication with the mogul.
“We are pleased but not at all surprised that the charges were dismissed. It’s clear from the trajectory of this case that her claims were not substantiated or credited, and the motive was questioned. Mr. Hoppy looks forward to moving on with his life and his daughter,” his attorney, Alex Spiro, said in a statement to E! News. A rep for the Real Housewives of New York City star is not commenting.
At the time of Hoppy’s arrest, he allegedly sent Frankel emails and text messages and approached her at their 7-year-old daughter Bryn‘s school, a court public information officer confirmed to E! News.
The former couple’s relationship has been rocky since they separated in 2012 after being married for a little more than two years. Their divorce took more than three years to finalize as they fought over alimony, child custody and Frankel’s New York City condo. By July 2016, Hoppy had moved out of the Tribeca home and a few weeks later, their attorneys confirmed the divorce was finished.
