 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Ohio State's third-string quarterback pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor count of loitering for prostitution and was reinstated to the football team.
Antonio Henton, a redshirt freshman, had been suspended for six weeks following a Sept. 24 arrest in which he was accused of offering an undercover policewoman $20 for sex.
In a plea deal with prosecutors, Franklin County Municipal Court Judge Ann Taylor waived a fine on the reduced charge and ordered Henton to pay $156 in court costs. The original first degree misdemeanor charge of soliciting prostitution carried a fine of up to $1,000 and jail time of up to six months.
``It was all a misunderstanding, but Antonio wanted to get back to life,'' Henton's attorney, Jim Phillips, said.
``Antonio has handled the situation properly,'' Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said in a statement.
