OLATHE, Kan. — After multiple felony charges were dismissed earlier this year, Jackson Mahomes has now pleaded no contest to one remaining misdemeanor.

Jackson Mahomes, the younger brother of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery Thursday.

Pleading no contest means Jackson Mahomes is accepting the charge but not admitting guilt. A no contest plea can’t be used against you as an admission of guilt if a civil lawsuit arises.

“This is based on a lot of negotiation with the state over a significant amount of time, Mahomes’ attorney Brandan Davies said. “We do believe it’s in the best interest of everybody involved.”

As part of the plea, Mahomes will receive a 6-month suspended sentence, avoiding jail time if he follows court orders. He also can’t have contact with the victim and is required to go through a alcohol and drug treatment and therapy.

“(Mahomes) was on pre-trial services for seven-plus months and performed flawlessly. I think this is a good resolution,” Davies said.

Prosecutors filed a motion in January to dismiss three felony charges of aggravated sexual battery against Jackson Mahomes. A Johnson County judge later approved the motion.

Court documents say the victim at the center of the case planned to assert her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if she were compelled to testify.

Prosecutors said the woman also said, even if she were granted immunity, she would say she has not been truthful to police and the encounter with Jackson Mahomes was consensual.

At a January hearing, however, prosecutors argued just because the witness won’t testify doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

The charges stem from an alleged incident on Feb. 25, 2023, at Aspens Restaurant and Lounge in Overland Park.

The restaurant owner told police that Jackson Mahomes shoved one of her employees. She initially told investigators she took him to another room.

Surveillance video from inside that room shows Jackson Mahomes grabbing the owner by the neck and trying to kiss her, court records say.

But the victim in the misdemeanor charge is not the same person involved in the three felony counts, according to court records; therefore, prosecutors still pursued that charge.
