Lampley Gets Probation

Jim Lampley, who started his broadcasting career in 1974 as a sideline reporter for ABC telecasts of college football games, has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge that he violated a restraining order to keep away from former girlfriend Candice Sanders, pictured below. In criminal court, a plea of no contest has the same effect as a guilty plea. Sanders, as we reported earlier, was Miss California 2003. Lampley, 57, was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to complete a 52-week domestic violence counseling program. He was also fined $674 and ordered to do 40 hours of volunteer work. The sentence is relatively standard for a first-time offender in a domestic violence case.
