Dion Sims Sentenced To Probation For Stolen Laptops Case

Michigan State tight end Dion Sims has been sentenced to a year of probation for his role in the stolen laptops case. From The State News:

Under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, if Sims follows the terms and conditions for his probation the incident will be cleared from his record, Fishman said. The terms include 15 hours of community service talking to student athletes in Detroit Public Schools and not purchasing or consuming alcohol or drugs.

The act allows a person ages 17 to 20 who has pleaded guilty for a crime to be placed in prison or on probation without conviction to avoid a criminal record.

Sims was suspended indefinitely from the MSU football team after all of this originally came out. So far there has been no word on if that has changed or will change in the future, but I'd expect to see Sims back on the team next year.
