Last year, Fortnite streamer Luke “MrDeadMoth” Munday was heard assaulting his then-pregnant girlfriend during a stream in front of the pair’s two children. After being arrested in December 2018, he was sentenced earlier this week and found guilty of a “single count of common assault (domestic violence).

As Kotaku Australia reports, he has been handed a “14-month community corrections order, which in the Australian state of New South Wales where the hearing took place basically means community service.

During Munday’s sentencing, his defense lawyer said, “He’s a loving, caring person with no history of domestic violence.. who unfortunately on this day just slapped his partner.” The lawyer’s use of the word “just” and his pleas for a more lenient sentence drew what the ABC describe as a “sharp rebuke” from the judge.
