Columbus Short Sentenced For Probation Violation

Columbus Short was sentenced to one month in jail for violating his probation in a felony assault case.

The former “Scandal” star, who has acknowledged he has a drug and alcohol problem, violated his probation by testing positive for cocaine and marijuana in April.

He appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday where he was sentenced to one month in jail. He was also ordered to spend six months in a live-in drug treatment facility.

Last week, Columbus’ estranged “wife,” Karrine Steffans took to social media to taunt the actor after he was jailed.

The good news is he will receive credit for the six days he’s already spent in jail.
