The Detroit Free Press reported that Michigan State recruit QB Jayru Campbell has been sentenced to 60 days in Jail, probation and community service for aggravated assault. He was charged for slamming a school security guard to the ground back in January. The incident was also caught on video which did not help his cause.
According to the Detroit Press,
The 17-year-old must turn himself in July 28, which gives him time to complete summer school, then he will begin serving his time in the Wayne County Jail. Campbell has been credited for three days already spent in custody, said Wayne County Circuit Judge Timothy Kenny, who presides over the criminal division.
“Mr. Campbell’s regrettable lack of self-control and his violent response to legitimate school authority has to be sanctioned,” Kenny said.
Campbell had been charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, a felony, and aggravated assault, a misdemeanor, after he slammed a 23-year-old security officer to the ground on Jan. 22 inside Cass Tech. Campbell pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor in a plea deal struck earlier this month, and the felony charge was dismissed.
In addition to the jail sentence, Campbell must spend 15 months on probation, submit to random drug testing, perform 75 hours of community service and attend and participate in psychological counseling and anger management treatment and classes.
