LAS VEGAS (AP) - An Oklahoma University football recruit from Las Vegas has pleaded no contest to four misdemeanor charges and has been sentenced to three years' probation in a March attack on his ex-girlfriend.
Court spokesman Michael Sommermeyer says 18-year-old Justin Chaisson's plea before Clark County District Court Judge Stefany Miley followed a similar plea to misdemeanor charges last week in Las Vegas Justice Court.
The former Bishop Gorman High School football player pleaded no contest Wednesday to charges, including malicious destruction of property, conspiracy and false imprisonment.
Prosecutors dropped felony charges alleging that Chaisson held a screwdriver to the neck of his 17-year-old former girlfriend and threatened her.
Chaisson has a full scholarship to play football for Oklahoma.
