Two of the white defendants involved in the iconic moment in contemporary Black history, the Montgomery Riverfront brawl, received their (predictably very light) sentences Friday, months after the malevolent mayo mayhem went viral.

According to CNN, 48-year-old Richard Roberts pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault for his part in the viral fight that occurred in August, and he was sentenced to 32 days in custody, which he gets to serve on the weekends over the course of four months. (So, it’s like jail, but also like a timeshare.)

Todd will also pay all costs associated with his case and perform 100 hours of community service.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old Mary Todd, who pleaded guilty to harassment as part of a plea agreement, was sentenced to anger management classes, which she has 90 days to complete. She also must pay court costs.
