Absolute Discharge - I think the fact he lost his job and the fact he'll never be able to return to any media outlet doing what he loved was a big enough punishment.

Standing in front of a judge after pleading guilty to assaulting his former girlfriend, former London TV anchor Dan MacLellan said he has learned "that from pain comes wisdom and it come comes in spite of ourselves."

Until last Christmas Eve, MacLellan was the face of the local newscast for almost a decade and a southwestern Ontario celebrity.

That was before the drunken pushing match with his then-girlfriend that led to him placing her in a headlock on the couch.

And it led to a very public shame.

It turned out MacLellan had a deep-seeded secret - a childhood marred by physical violence that put him on a path of alcohol and rage.
