LSU RB Jeremy Hill pleads guilty to simple battery charge
LSU running back Jeremy Hill was sentenced to two years probation after pleading guilty to a simple battery charge stemming from an incident in Baton Rouge in April.
Hill was suspended indefinitely from the LSU football team in April after he was accused of punching a 20-year-old man at a Baton Rouge bar and knocking him unconscious. Earlier this week, the sophomore running back was formally charged with simple battery, a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to two years of probation, 50 hours of community service, and he must pay $375 for the victim's medical bills and write a letter of apology.
According to Baton Rouge's WBRZ, Hill also received a six-month suspended jail sentence. He has to give weekly updates to a probation officer and is currently under a curfew. Hill was also instructed not make any comments to the press or on social media.
As a freshman, Hill led the Tigers in rushing with 755 yards and 12 touchdowns. A bulk of that production came late in the season, when Hill totaled 684 yards and 10 touchdowns in the final seven games. His emergence provided a noticeable boost to the LSU offense, and his status for 2013 will likely be a topic for coach Les Miles to address at SEC Media Days next week.
