Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Admits to Violating Probation, Gets Another Chance

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro admits he violated his probation by getting arrested for alleged domestic violence, but this must be his lucky day — because the judge is giving him another shot.

The ‘Jersey Shore’ star appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Friday, where he admitted to his probation violation, which could have meant immediate jail time — but, instead, the court’s making this a teachable moment for Ronnie.

We got Ronnie going into court and he told our photog he was hoping for good news … and he definitely got some.

You’ll recall, the D.A.’s Office said Ronnie violated probation in his domestic violence case with his ex Jenn Harley … when he got arrested for an alleged incident with Saffire Matos, his latest GF.

On Friday, the judge ordered Ronnie to take 26 parenting classes, and there’s now a 3-year protective order in place so he can’t harass or intimidate Saffire. The judge also gave him credit for completing a rehab program in Florida, so he won’t have to spend 30 days in jail.

As we first told you … Ronnie claims he’s since cleaned up his act and he’s getting ready to return to the reality TV show that made him famous.

Ronnie’s attorney, Scott Leemon, tells TMZ … they’re happy the court was satisfied with Ron’s completion of a rehab program. We’re told Ron’s now been sober for 5 months and is deciding to continue with counseling as he focuses on being a better family man.

His next court date is set for March 17, but he will not have to be there in person.
