SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco software company says it has terminated its CEO, a wealthy Internet entrepreneur who recently was convicted of domestic violence.

RadiumOne said in a statement that its board of directors decided Saturday night to fire CEO and Chairman Gurbaksh Chahal.

The 31-year-old pleaded guilty earlier this month to battery and domestic-violence battery, both misdemeanor charges, in the alleged August 2014 beating of his girlfriend.

Chahal was sentenced to three years’ probation and ordered to take domestic-violence classes and do community service. He will not serve any jail time.

Before leading RadiumOne, Chahal founded and sold two Internet companies for more than $300 million.

RadiumOne says Chief Operating Officer Bill Lonergan will take over as CEO of the online advertising company.
