Comedian Micah “Katt” Williams will have to undergo a year of anger management classes after pleading no contest Monday to a robbery charge stemming from a 2014 incident during which prosecutors say he and rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight snatched a camera from a photographer.

Comedian Katt Williams is seen in a booking photo released by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office in June.

Under the terms of the deal, Williams, 54, also received three years’ probation when he entered the plea to second-degree robbery, according to a statement by the Los Angeles district attorney’s office. The comedian had faced up to seven years in prison.

Prosecutors say Williams and Knight, who co-founded Death Row Records, chased a female celebrity photographer and snatched her camera outside of a Beverly Hills studio in September 2014.

Knight, who is still facing a murder trial in a separate case, has pleaded not guilty in both the murder and robbery cases.
