HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — A standout southwest Ohio athlete has been ordered to stay on the sidelines by a judge after pleading guilty to felonious assault.
Nineteen-year-old Dwayne "Deejay" Hunter was sentenced to 180 days in jail, five years of probation and 500 hours of community service. Among terms of his probation, Hunter cannot play organized sports.
Hunter pleaded guilty in July to felonious assault, for shooting a 15-year-old boy twice in the face with a BB gun. He faced a maximum eight years in prison.
The Middletown High School football and track star read a statement in court Thursday expressing remorse and asking for another chance.
Butler County Common Pleas Judge Andrew Nastoff warned Hunter he will go to prison for six years if he violates probation.
