Posted: Updated:

EAST LANSING, MI (WLNS) - A 20-year-old MSU student has been sentenced to 45 days in jail for being part of the civil disturbance on Dec. 8, 2013 after MSU's win against Ohio State.

The student, Justin Paul Roe was arrested and arraigned on Dec. 13, 2013 on three disorderly conduct charges. The charges include kindling a fire, unlawful assembly and remaining within 300 feet of a fire.

Roe was sentenced to 45 days in Ingham County jail last week. His sentence includes work/school release, fines and costs totaling $542 and $458 restitution.

The sentence comes after a plea deal and sentence agreement between the city attorney and Roe's attorney. Roe was given the option of 30 days in jail or he would be prohibited from attending MSU or any other Michigan public college, university or community college for a one-year period.

Roe's 45 day sentence guarantees that he can still attend MSU.

Roe is the first student to be sentenced to jail time as a result of the post Big Ten Champsion civial disturbance. He is among 28 people arrested on a variety of charges.
