A year after the legendary musician plead guilty to domestic violence, terrorizing, and threatening-related charges, a judge has dismissed the convictions against him. 

In 2016, famed musician Don McLean was accused of domestic violence and other charges following a dispute with his ex-wife, Patrisha. The pair had been married for more than 30 years, but had experienced much disagreement in the recent times after they filed for divorce.

A plea deal reached with prosecutors allowed McLean to pay a $3,000 fine and receive a "deferred disposition" under Maine law. The agreement stipulated that McLean would need to stay out of trouble for a year and follow all rules of the plea deal in order to have the charges dismissed against him. 

On Thursday, July 20th, 2017, a judge ruled that the charges against McLean would be dismissed because he had completed the terms of his plea agreement and followed court orders. 

McLean's lawyer, Walter McKee, issued a statement that declared McLean never assaulted his ex-wife, and that the famous musician intends to clear his name of all accusations. 

What do you think about the new change in the charges against McLean? Let us know in the comments.
