The system is weak.

Columbus Short released from jail after only serving 34 days after beating his wife up.

Via Page Six:

The LA County Sheriff’s Department didn’t give a reason for Short’s early release.

The former “Scandal” star pleaded no contest to the charge last November, when he was sentenced to 36 months of probation; however, Short was already on probation from a previous run-in with the law that saw him knock a man out in a bar fight, so he was sentenced to a year behind bars.

Short began his sentence Feb. 13 but was released Monday from Los Angeles County Jail.

The 35-year-old actor previously served a month in jail for violating his probation after testing positive for cocaine and marijuana. He was also ordered to spend six months in a live-in drug treatment program.
