COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A former agent with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division has pleaded guilty in connection with several domestic violence incidents.

The State of Columbia reports 27-year-old Rodney Bostick was given two sentences of 30 days in jail on Monday after pleading guilty to two charges of third-degree assault and battery, and received credit for time served, allowing him to walk out of court a free man.

Under the plea agreement, charges of kidnapping, misconduct in office and domestic violence were dropped. His plea means he cannot possess a weapon, under a federal law aimed at preventing domestic abuse. Bostick’s name will be entered in the National Crime Information Center, and two restraining orders prevent him from ever contacting the victims.

He was arrested and fired in July 2016.
