Michigan Wolverines sophomore WR Jerald Robinson was sentenced to six months probation on Tuesday for malicious destruction of property in Washtenaw County's 15th District Court. Robinson broke a parking gate in February and plead guilty on Aug. 6.
Robinson made his plea under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which means that he won't have the conviction on his record as long as he complies with the terms of his probation. He must perform 24 hours of community service, pay fines of $440 in addition to oversight of $125 and yet undetermined restitution amount, and is prohibited from using alcohol or drugs during his probation. The restitution amount will be determined during an Oct. 29 hearing. The parking company assessed the damage at $389, which Robinson's attorney believes is excessive.
This season Robinson has two receptions for 19 yards. The Wolverines next take on the No. 11 Notre Dame Fighting Irish at 7:30 p.m. ET in South Bend.

The University of Michigan should have wide receiver Jerald Robinson in action this coming season, providing the maximum penalty for his charge isn't carried out, which it almost never is. According to ESPN, Robinson pleaded guilty Monday morning to a misdemeanor charge of malicious destruction of property in the 15th District Court in Ann Arbor.
Robinson damaged a parking gate arm at 351 S. Fifth Avenue, a parking lot owned by Republic Parking, on Feb. 4, according to the case (don't forget the initial report, which said Robinson "maliciously injured" the gate arm). Robinson's guilty plea carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail and a $2,000 fine -- or three times the amount of destruction.
The punishment is still up in the air, though Robinson was able to plead guilty under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which means he wont have a conviction on his record. Apparently, the repairs should cost around $25, while "unrecoverable revenue" comes in somewhere around the $400 mark, so if things are resolved monetarily as it seems like they will, Robinson shouldn't have to pay that much and will be able to get back to work with the Wolverines, as he hopes to be a big part of the team this coming season.

The warrant that was out for Robinson was on one count of malicious destruction of personal property of $200 or more but less than $1000. Robinson allegedly destroyed the parking gate arm in a local parking lot back in early February.
The redshirt sophomore for the Wolverines is likely to get significant playing time during the 2012 season, so it's a good thing that he nipped the problem in the bud as quickly as possible so as to avoid any awkward legal problems with his team with the season quickly approaching.
