It's official ... Chad Johnson will NOT spend a day in jail for allegedly headbutting his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada last month -- but he will be spending a lot of time in counseling.

Chad showed up to a Florida courtroom for his sentencing this morning, where he pled "no contest" to a charge of domestic battery, stemming from the violent August 11th argument with Lozada over a condom receipt.

In exchange for the plea, Chad escaped a jail sentence -- but was sentenced to 12 months probation and ordered to enroll in a batterers intervention program.

The judge also issued a no-contact order for the duration of his probation, blocking Chad from contacting Evelyn in any way -- no email, no Twitter, no nothing.

Chad was also ordered to pay restitution -- but the amount won't be determined 'til next week.

Of all the bullsh1t, nothing that was imposed, it's the no contact order - IN ANY FORM - that will drive that idiot nuts. I'm sure that he's stupid enough to have concocted a reality show of them getting back together. I know that's sounds nuts... but consider who we're talking about, Clueless.

Chad has had Karma inflicted upon him and now he has to lay in a hard bed. Dumb fool!!!! Providing for your children should have been your first priority. Instead, you chose to marry a mentally unstable gold digger. Now you're broke and unemployed.
