Cincinnati signee Lance Stephenson pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct Friday, effectively ending the sexual assault case that plagued the McDonald All-American's recruitment and reputation.
Stephenson was accused of groping a 17-year-old girl during an incident last October and was facing up to six months in jail on the misdemeanor sexual assault charge. But with the plea, he will now be asked to perform just three days of community service and undergo counseling, according to the New York Daily News .
"We just want to move on and think about college," Stephenson's father, Lance Stephenson Sr., told the New York Daily News . "We're happy to be able to move on."
Stephenson is the state of New York's all-time leading scorer.
Whether the NCAA will clear him to compete as a freshman remains unclear.
