MSU Football Hopeful Gets Jail For Assault

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - The Cass Tech High School football star who pleaded guilty to body-slamming a school security guard was sentenced to jail time and probation Friday morning.

17-year old Jayru Campbell will serve 60 days in Wayne County Jail starting July 28. He will also be on probation for 15 months, submit to random drug testing, undergo psychological counseling and anger management classes. The judge ordered that he also serve 75 hours of community service.

The Cass Technical High School junior pleaded guilty earlier this month to misdemeanor aggravated assault in a deal that could leave him with a clean record. A felony charge was dismissed.

His record could be expunged if he attends anger management classes and gets counseling.

Campbell admitted that he slammed a security officer head-first on Jan. 22 after refusing to pull a hood off his head. The confrontation was recorded on video.

Campbell led Cass Tech to state championships in 2011 and 2012. He has said he wants to play football at Michigan State in 2015.
