Beverly Hills Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel sentenced Alan Lee Panettiere, 49, to 24 months probation, ordered him to complete 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling and ordered him to pay $400 in fines. The judge also issued a protective order requiring that the defendant not harm or annoy the victim.
Panettiere was arrested in August after he allegedly assaulted his wife at their West Hollywood home.
According to authorities, the father, who fatally shot his wife, five children and himself in the Wilmington section of Los Angeles, forwarded a note to KABC-TV noting that the couple had just been fired from a medical center and that the shootings were planned.
The man claimed that prior to the firing, an administrator told the couple they should not have come to work and told them, "You should have blown your brains out," KABC-TV reported.
The note went on to say that the husband and wife worked as medical technicians at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center.
Police reported that the victims included two sets of twins and an 8-year-old girl.

According to David Lazarus, a financial writer for the Los Angeles Times, both pot smoking and prostitution are very popular "sins" that, if legalized and taxed, could produce millions or even billions in extra revenue for California.
A number of Lazarus's financial industry colleagues have backed the proposals, though there is more positive energy for the marijuana side than the prostitution side.
In order for these ideas to make progress, they both would have to go before the voters as ballot measures.
The lawsuit alleges that several parts of the MH-60S helicopter were defective and caused the crash in January 2007, which killed four people in all.
Named in the lawsuit are the helicopter's manufacturer, Sikorsky Aircraft, and other companies that manufactured components for the aircraft: Alcoa, Pacific Scientific, Hi-Shear Corp., Parker-Hannifin Corp. and General Electric.
The helicopter departed for the training exercise Jan. 26, 2007, from the amphibious assault ship Bonhomme Richard, some 50 miles from shore.
The victims were Lt. j.g. Laura J. Mankey of West Hills; Lt. Adam Dyer, 28, of Lafayette, La.; Petty Officer 1st Class Cory Helman, 27, of New Richmond, Wis.; and Petty Officer 2nd Class Christopher Will, 29, of Warren, Mich. They were members of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 23 assigned to the North Island Naval Air Station.

Lavar McKiernan, 34, who was to be booked on charges of felony driving under the influence, felony evading causing injuries, and attempting to harm a police dog, was moved to Tri-City Hospital in Oceanside, where he was being held under guard Sunday morning.
According to authorities, just before 1 a.m. Sunday, Carlsbad police Officer Samantha Alexander tried to stop McKiernan at Carlsbad Boulevard and State Street, near the Army and Navy Academy, after his vehicle reportedly nearly crashed into three parked cars
McKiernan drove off with Alexander in pursuit, rear-ended a vehicle and ran into a telephone pole before heading into the Buena Vista Lagoon west of Carlsbad Boulevard, about a half-mile from where the chase started.
Other Carlsbad police officers, assisted by an Oceanside police dog and the San Diego Police Department's Able helicopter, pursued McKiernan to the lagoon, where he was spotted hiding in about 4 feet of water.
After being given several opportunities to surrender, police went into the water along with the dog to arrest the suspect.
McKiernan attempted to drown the dog, who was not injured, three times before he was arrested.
Authorities say that Elisao Gilbert Jimenez, 66, was taken into custody Friday after a search of his residence in the 39000 block of Liefer Road showed a number of dogs and cats "in poor health."
Deputies were dispatched to Jimenez's home to assist Department of Animal Services officers with a vicious dog, and when they looked in the back of the suspect's property, they discovered more than 200 dog and cat carcasses.
Animal Control Officers reported discovering 204 dead animals in plastic bags in different stages of decomposition. They also located more than 82 dogs and nearly three dozen ferel cats.
