GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Former University of Florida football player Jamar Hornsby will avoid jail time by accepting a plea bargain on four misdemeanor charges of improper use of a credit card.
He was sentenced Monday to one year of probation and ordered to pay nearly $9,000 in restitution and court costs.
Hornsby, a former safety, was arrested by the Alachua County Sheriff's Office in May on felony charges that he made nearly 70 fraudulent charges on the gas card of a female UF student who died alongside a walk-on football player in a motorcycle accident last October.
Hornsby was also ordered to tour the Florida State Prison at Raiford and write an essay about his experience during the tour within 90 days.
Hornsby is playing football at East Mississippi Junior College.
