Aiden Turner

Best Plea Bargain Ever

In Domestic Violence Case

EXCLUSIVE

Aiden Turner
-- like the 1980 US Hockey Team -- now believes in miracles ... because his lawyer just got him an unbelievable plea bargain in his domestic violence case.

The former "All My Children" star was charged with 2 counts of domestic violence with injury and 2 other related charges.  He allegedly chucked a remote at his live-in girlfriend and gave her a black eye and bruised her elbow.

Enter criminal defense attorney Mike Cavalluzzi.  He scored a plea where ALL of the charges were dropped and Aiden pled no contest to misdemeanor disturbing the peace.

Aiden -- who you may remember from "Dancing with the Stars" -- must complete 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling.  After 1 year the plea is reduced to a mere infraction -- like a traffic ticket.

Remember that name ... Mike Cavalluzzi.

It's shyte like this that women who are beaten on a daily basis refuse to come forward and live in Terror and shame. There should never be a plea bargain with this kind of charge.

It's a good thing he didn't hit my sister or he'd be starring in "All My Broken Teeth."

Why would this site ask it's readers to remember the name of the attorney who bargained for an aggressor in a domestic violence situation? Do they think their readers are likely offenders, as well?
