BRENTWOOD – Former Seabrook patrolman Mark Richardson pleaded guilty Monday to one count of simple assault Monday.
According to Seacoast Online, Richardon's plea came four months after a jury was hung in the first trial accusing Richardson of police brutality.
Richardson was indicted in 2014 after a video shows Richardson slamming a 19-year-old DWI suspect Michael Bergeron’s face into a cinder-block wall.
Richardson, who was fired after the incident, could face up to 12 months in jail.
As part of the plea deal, the state also asked that Richardson never seek employment in law enforcement again.
A sentencing hearing has been set for Nov. 12.
Take a look at the video that led to Richardson's firing below.
