Former Louisville player avoids jail time

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Willie Williams, dismissed from the University of Louisville football team last month, pleaded guilty Friday to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge.

The Louisville Courtier Journal reported Williams will not have to serve jail time.

The newspaper reported that two other charges -- driving without a license and felony tampering with physical evidence -- were dropped as part of a plea agreement.

An initial sentence of 120 days in jail was waived as long as Williams follows the conditions of his release.

He was ordered to undergo a substance-abuse evaluation to determine if he has a drug problem and to obey any recommendation that comes from that evaluation.

Williams, a linebacker for the Cardinals, was kicked off the team Sept. 27 following his arrest.
