ROCHESTER, Ind. (AP) — Two Notre Dame football players arrested on marijuana charges may avoid jail time and criminal records after reaching plea bargains with prosecutors.
Running back Dexter Williams and defensive back Ashton White each pleaded guilty Tuesday to a single misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana. The two sophomores were among five players who were arrested after an Aug. 19 traffic stop along U.S. 31 in Indiana.
Under the plea agreement, White and Williams would enter a diversion program that would dismiss their cases after serving one year of probation. If they fail to meet required conditions, a judge could enter convictions and send them to jail.
The South Bend Tribune reports that cases remain pending against the three other current or former players who were arrested.
