Jason Alexander, the ex-husband of pop icon Britney Spears, made a plea deal with the court Thursday, to expedite his release from prison.
Alexander, the 40-year-old who was married to Britney Spears for 55 hours in 2004, plead no contest to aggravated trespass and battery and the felony stalking and misdemeanor vandalism charges were dismissed, according to TMZ.
