Peterson avoids jail with plea deal


CONROE: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will avoid jail time after reaching a plea agreement with prosecutors on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) in the child abuse case against him. Peterson, 29, was facing felony charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child after he was accused of whipping his four-year-old son with a tree branch. The NFL star could have faced up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if he were convicted of the felony charge.
