Woman sentenced for 2016 scuffle involving Notre Dame football player Devin Butler
SOUTH BEND — Haleigh Bailey, the woman charged with battery in a 2016 altercation that involved then-Notre Dame football player Devin Butler, will avoid jail after being sentenced Tuesday to time served.
Bailey, 25, pleaded guilty in March to a felony count of battery. She was accused of hitting and kicking another woman for speaking to Butler, then her boyfriend, in August 2016 outside the Linebacker Lounge on South Bend Avenue.
At sentencing, St. Joseph Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Hurley entered the conviction as a misdemeanor and sentenced Bailey to two days in jail, plus $640 restitution, a $150 fine and court costs. Bailey got credit for her brief time in jail when she surrendered in January.
