Michigan WR Jerald Robinson Pleads Guilty To Misdemeanor

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.
