BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) -Penn State safety Anthony Scirrotto was sentenced to a year of probation after pleading guilty Thursday to a reduced charge for his role in an off-campus fight.
Scirrotto must serve 25 days of community service and pay a $500 fine after his plea to a misdemeanor count of defiant trespass, defense attorney Ron McGlaughlin said.
A felony charge of criminal trespass and one count of summary harassment were dismissed as part of the agreement with prosecutors.
Two people were hurt in the fight last April at an apartment, police said.
Scirrotto will be a senior next season. The two-year starter has 10 career interceptions.
Former Penn State defensive tackle Chris Baker is awaiting trial on criminal charges for his part in the fight.
