ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Former Michigan wide receiver Csont'e York has been sentenced to at least seven days in jail and two years of probation on misdemeanor assault charges.

York on Friday told the court that he made a terrible mistake and wanted to apologize.

The 20-year-old pleaded guilty last month to one count of aggravated assault and one count of assault and battery. Police said York broke a man's jaw with a punch and pushed another man just after 2 a.m. July 18 outside a bar in Ann Arbor.

District Judge Elizabeth Pollard Hines also ordered York to pay the man's medical bills.


York, who appeared in one game as a reserve wide receiver as a freshman last season, enrolled at Toledo after being kicked off the Michigan team.
