CONROE, Texas (AP) – A Texas prosecutor has criticized the judge who cut short the probation of Minnesota Viking Adrian Peterson in a child abuse case.

State District Judge Kelly Case on Thursday reduced the 2012 NFL most valuable player’s probation from two years to nine months already served. Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon said Case seemed “enamored with an elite athlete.”

Requirements also have been waived for the Vikings’ star running back to complete a public service announcement about child abuse, check in monthly with a probation officer and undergo mandatory drug tests.

Peterson pleaded no contest last year to a misdemeanor charge of reckless assault for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son.

Peterson’s attorney told the Houston Chronicle his client didn’t receive special treatment. Case declined to comment.
