Austin Clay, 24, entered the plea on a charge of felony vandalism. In addition to the probation, Clay was ordered to pay $9,500 in damages to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and must complete community service, the Times reported.


Clay turned himself in to police in July after using a pickax to damage Trump's star. Clay was taken into custody on suspicion of vandalism but was reportedly bailed out two days later by James Otis, who damaged the star days before the 2016 presidential election.

The star was also vandalized earlier in 2016, when someone spray-painted it. 

The plea Clay entered on Wednesday was made as part of a deal with prosecutors, according to the Times.

Under the plea deal, Clay won't serve any additional time in jail, the Times reported. He originally faced up to three years behind bars.
