Jackson Mahomes, the younger brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, entered a no contest plea Thursday in Johnson County District Court in Kansas to one count of misdemeanor battery.

A Johnson County judge ordered the Johnson County Sheriff's Department to find out if Mahomes qualifies for work release. He also sentenced Mahomes to six months probation.

The plea comes in a case that began with an incident Feb. 23, 2023, at a restaurant in Overland Park.

Mahomes also had been charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery in that incident.

Those charges were dismissed by a Johnson County judge on Jan. 3, 2024.

The Johnson County District Attorney's office requested the three felony charges be dropped because a witness in the case stopped cooperating with prosecutors.

A jury trial on the battery charge had been set for March 25.
