Notre Dame WR Mahone sentenced to 10 days in jail

Notre Dame v Michigan

Notre Dame wide receiver Will Mahone will serve 10 days in jail after pleading guilty to four misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, assault and aggravated menacing. Felony charges were wiped off his record as part of his plea.

A county judge offered Mahone some leniency in the sentencing, telling Mahone he felt a stronger sentence should be enforced. Mahone will also serve a year on probation and he received credit for two days in jail served following the initial arrest until bail was posted.

As noted by Keith Arnold of Inside the Irish, Mahone still has an uncertain future at Notre Dame. Following Mahone’s arrest, Notre Dame suspended the receiver indefinitely while the legal process played out. Mahone is not currently enrolled at Notre Dame, leaving a cloud of uncertainty surrounding his future at this point. An attorney representing Mahone has said Mahone would like to be able to return to Notre Dame when the time is appropriate, but no decision on his fate has been made just yet.

    Shouldn’t the headline read “Former Notre Dame…”?

    No, since he’s on indefinite suspension, he’s not “former” yet.

    Reading is fundamental….

    Depends on how good he is.

    brianincbus says he’s not “former” yet, and 8to80texansblog implies he’s not “former” and says reading is fundamental. Haters gonna hate. And reading is fundamental, such as “” Mahone is not currently enrolled at Notre Dame …” If he’s not enrolled and not a student, how could he be a current football team member?

    As soon as he serves his jail time, his indefinite suspension will probably be over, especially if he was expected to get playing time. Just because he’s not enrolled now doesn’t mean that couldn’t change in a matter of days. They could also sign him up for independent study classes for the current term. I’m sure if Notre Dame can use him all this stuff will be overlooked. However, according to one of the previous stories it looks like he was third on the depth chart so they may just jettison him.

    I’m more disappointed this kid basically got nothing. Ten days in jail is nothing compared to what he did and said during the activities surrounding his arrest. Allegedly threatening to kill police officers and he only gets ten days in jail? All this incident did was show that he can do or say whatever he wants and get off with a very light sentence. The felony charges were dropped which would have precluded him from playing college football. Unless I’m mistaken the NCAA has a rule that you can’t play if you have a felony conviction although that may not apply in the SEC so maybe this kid will land in Auburn.

    Fall classes don’t start until the end of August….

    Geez. Get a clue. Yes, fall classes don’t start until the end of August, but every member of every FBS football team is enrolled in summer school. Can you imagine a student enrolling in the end of August and playing on the team that’s already completed camp and, at some schools, have already played a game? I’m not advocating whether or not he should be allowed to be enrolled at ND or part of the ND team. I’m merely (wasting my time trying to be logical and) pointing out how far haters will reach to justify their blowhard rhetoric. You’ve already acknowledged he’s not currently enrolled as a student, but you aren’t willing to admit that “Notre Dame WR …” is misleading as it implies the story pertains to a current ND WR?
