BARNSTABLE (AP) — Former Massachusetts candidate for governor and convenience store magnate Christy Mihos has reached an agreement with prosecutors for pretrial probation in a domestic assault and battery charge.
Mihos’ then-wife Andrea Mihos accused him two years ago of threatening her and pushing her during an argument at their Yarmouth home several months earlier. He pleaded not guilty.
Under the agreement approved in court Monday, the charge would be dismissed in nine months if Mihos follows conditions including staying away from his ex-wife and getting a mental health evaluation and any prescribed treatment.
The couple divorced last year in a contentious case in which Andrea Mihos’ attorney said her husband blew through $25 million on failed bids for governor and hiring prostitutes. Christy Mihos is appealing the divorce judge’s financial award to Andrea Mihos.
