Bentley was acquitted of aggravated domestic battery following a jury trial last month. The 22-year-old victim claimed to Cook County sheriff's police she had been punched, strangled and held for several days against her will.

She escaped after telling Bentley she had to go to the store. Instead, she went to a relative's home and called police.

Greenblatt awarded Bentley credit for 245 days in custody and ordered him to pay $749 in fines.
