Chad Johnson is now a free man. 

One week after Johnson was sentenced to 30 days in jail for slapping his attorney on the rear during a plea agreement, Judge Kathleen McHugh accepted Johnson's apology he gave on Monday. 

''I just wanted to apologize for disrespecting the court last time,'' said Johnson. ''I apologize. I did have time to reflect on the mistakes I made in this courtroom.'' 

McHugh ordered Johnson to perform 25 hours of community service and attend domestic violence counseling sessions twice a week during probation, and she extended his probation an extra three months through mid-October.
