SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) – Gurbaksh Chahal, the tech mogul who was fired as CEO from his own company for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, has managed to evade serving any jail time thus far. However, he will be sentenced Friday in a San Francisco court for violating his probation in a second assault, a year after the first one.

The former CEO pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor assault charges from the original 2013 assault. He paid a fine and was stripped of his chief executive title of RadiumOne, a marketing tech company. He was also placed on probation.

Then in 2014, Chahal was accused of assaulting another woman. Last month, San Francisco Supreme Court Judge Tracie Brown ruled that Chahal had violated his probation as a result of the second assault. Now, Chahal faces sentencing for misdemeanor charges related to the second assault, he could face up to a year in jail. He might very well look at getting help filing Santa Ana Bail Bonds depending on the bail amount set by the court.

However, his fate could have been much worse – Chahal originally faced 47 felony assault charges stemming from the 2013 incident, a video showed him striking his then-girlfriend 117 times. The video was ruled inadmissible in court after a judge determined police had seized it illegally. As a result, his charges were downgraded to the aforementioned misdemeanors.

RadiumOne’s board only fired Chahal after the company faced public backlash for keeping him on.

In an open letter to the board in 2014, Chahal wrote that he was “deeply disappointed” as well as “shocked and saddened” with the company’s decision to fire him over the “exaggerated allegations against me.” He wrote that he was “practically lynched on social media.”

Aside from his assault matters, Chahal is also involved in a pending lawsuit at another marketing tech company, Gravity4, where he is accused of wrongful termination. Encarnita Alonso filed a lawsuit against Gravity4 last year, after the company hired her as senior vice president of global marketing and fired her just six weeks later.

Her lawsuit, filed in California state court, charges that Chahal and Gravity 4 violated her privacy by secretly monitoring her and that her termination was part of a “pattern … of humiliating and abusing women who dared to question him.”
