Michigan Football's Will Campbell Sentenced To Probation, Fine

On Friday morning, University of Michigan senior defensive tackle Will Campbell was sentenced to three months of probation and forced to pay $2,100 for drunkenly sliding across a car hood in April.

Campbell had already pleaded guilty and accepted the fine back in June during the preliminary hearing. During the sentencing on Friday, Judge Chris Easthope utilized the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which means that the conviction will be erased from Campbell's record if he can complete his probation without any more violations.

However, the judge did not require Campbell to undergo any physics lessons as part of his sentencing.

Michigan DT Will Campbell Pleads Guilty To Misdemeanor, Avoids Felony Charge

Michigan senior defensive tackle William Campbell pleaded guilty to a malicious destruction of property charge on Thursday morning in an Ann Arbor courthouse, but avoided a much harsher felony charge for vandalism in the process.

The 6-foot-5 Campbell will be ordered to pay only restitution for his crime, after fully acknowledging his role in an April 7 incident where he inadvertently used his 335-pound frame to cause damage to a car while intoxicated.

A felony charge for vandalism could have equated to a five-year jail stint and a $10,000 fine, though a first-time offender like Campbell likely would have been afforded some leniency. Still, though, Campbell definitely benefited from his squeaky-clean background to avoid the felony, and will need to work hard to prove this was an isolated incident to both his current coaches and prospective NFL scouts when the time comes.
