Nick Gordon avoided jail time and probation in the case involving his no contact order violation, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.

An official at the State Attorney's Office in Seminole County, Florida confirmed to Radar that on September 14, a judge sided with Gordon's defense team, in which he was only ordered to pay court fees for the charge of violation of conditions of pretrial release.

As Radar readers know, Gordon was slapped with the charge back in March after he allegedly visited his girlfriend, Laura Leal, against a judge's orders.

The no contact order stemmed from Gordon's battery charge, which also occurred in March. At the time, Leal told police that Gordon had struck her in the face. The case was dropped, however, after Leal changed her story days later.

According to a news release issued by the State Attorney's Office, Gordon entered a no contest plea on Friday for the violation charge. A no contest plea means he wanted to resolve the case without admitting guilt.

The court document also stated that in addition to avoiding probation, Gordon also avoided some other serious responsibilities. State prosecutors sought to have Gordon sentenced to "a domestic violence batterers intervention program, substance abuse evaluation and no hostile contact with the victim in this case," the release explained.

However, the judge sided with Gordon and only ordered him to pay fines totaling $450.60.

Court records viewed by Radar explained that if Gordon fails to make payments, he could lose his license among other penalties.

As Radar readers know, Gordon has been in and out of jail since ex-girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown's death in 2015.

Gordon was not criminally charged in connection with Brown's death but held liable by a default judgment in a civil case.
