Bradley, 49, was arrested in February 2010.
In December, he was found guilty of attempted assault, harassment and criminal contempt.
Acting state Supreme Court Justice Susan Capeci criticized the former mayor for continuing to claim that he was the victim in the case but she said she was taking into account his clean record. Bradley could’ve faced a year behind bars.
Bradley was also to permanently stay away from his estranged wife. The two are in the process of getting a divorce. They have two young daughters.

Bradley’s wife alleged that he slammed a door on her fingers and threw hot tea at her.
“I was married to a powerful politician and afraid what would happen to my children and me if I broke the silence. I want this case to show that there is justice and hope for anybody to be free from violence,” Fumiko Bradly said in a statement that was read at the sentencing by one of the prosecutors.
Bradley resigned after just a year in office.
When he resigned, Bradley said he had to dedicate his time to his appeal.
