Comedian Micah “Katt” Williams pleaded no contest today to one felony count of second-degree robbery, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen immediately sentenced Williams to three years of formal probation and ordered him to complete 54 weeks of anger management classes. Deputy District Attorney Keri Modder prosecuted the case.

The charge stems from an incident on Sept. 5, 2014 during which Williams stole a camera from a female celebrity photographer in Beverly Hills. Marion “Suge” Knight also was charged and his case is still pending.

The Beverly Hills Police Department investigated case SA089020.
