BATAVIA, Ohio (AP) - Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Leon Hall has
pleaded to a reduced charge in his drunken driving case, allowing him to avoid jail time.
Hall pleaded guilty on Monday to a misdemeanor charge of reckless operation of a vehicle. A Clermont County Municipal Court judge sentenced him to attend a three-day program that deals with how alcohol and drugs affect driving.
The rest of his 30-day sentence was suspended. Hall also must perform 64 hours of community service.
Hall was arrested on April 5. The Ohio State Highway Patrol said he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.149. The state's legal limit is 0.08.
