Ex-Michigan football player gets jail time in assault case

BY AP • December 1, 2017

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Former Michigan football player Nate Johnson has been sentenced to four days in jail after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors to resolve a domestic assault case.

The Ann Arbor News reports a judge in Ann Arbor on Friday also sentenced the 19-year-old to six months of probation. He previously pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery.

Johnson last month told the court he had a ''physical altercation'' with a woman. Under the plea agreement, the 19-year-old's criminal record can be cleared if he follows court-imposed conditions.

Johnson was dismissed from the team after the assault, which the school said happened Sept. 30 outside a dormitory.

The sophomore cornerback from Thompson's Station, Tennessee, played wide receiver last year as a freshman, catching one pass.
