Terri Seymour's Attacker Pleads Guilty

Janice Thibodeaux -- the lady accused of choking Simon Cowell's ex girlfriend, Terri Seymour -- just pled guilty to battery. The assault charge was dropped.

Janice received 36 months probation, has to complete 20 days of labor and has the option to go to anger management or to have 36 hours of psych evaluation. She has to report back to court on July 16 for a progress report.

The attack against Seymour occurred a few weeks back after a taping of "American Idol."

Terri filed for a restraining order shortly after the incident.
