LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - New England Patriots running back Kevin Faulk pleaded no contest to misdemeanor marijuana charges and received a year of probation.
Judge Herman Clause also suspended a five-month sentence on Tuesday, according to the clerk of court's office in Lafayette Parish.
Faulk was issued a misdemeanor summons for simple possession of marijuana at a Li'l Wayne concert at the Cajundome in February.
He must undergo 20 hours of NFL-approved substance abuse treatment, pay $781 in fines and court costs and provide 40 hours of community service through anti-drug lectures to students at Lafayette Parish middle and high schools.
Faulk, an LSU graduate, is expected to report for camp with the Patriots on July 23.
Faulk was a captain last season for the Patriots, who lost in the Super Bowl to the New York Giants. He had 47 catches for 383 yards and one touchdown. Faulk also had 62 rushes for 265 yards.
