FSU WR Jesus Wilson pleads no contest to reduced grand theft charge

Florida State wide receiver Jesus "Bobo" Wilson pleaded no contest to misdemeanor petty theft and misdemeanor criminal mischief after stealing and crashing a scooter in June. 

Wilson was initially charged with felony grand vehicle theft and admitted to taking the scooter -- he told authorities the keys were in the ignition. He was suspended indefinitely, per university policy.

According to Tim Jansen, Wilson's attorney, the sophomore wide receiver paid $1,074 in restitution for the scooter and will serve 30 days in a jail work camp as part of the plea deal. 

Wilson is a speedy, 5-10 wide receiver from Miami, Fla. who saw limited action as a freshman in 2013 but is expected to work his way into the rotation this fall. Since he is no longer charged with a felony he is eligible, according to university rules, to rejoin the team. However, as Jansen pointed out to Warchant.com, that decision must be made by the university and head coach Jimbo Fisher.
