Jefferson Indicted On Lesser Charge For Role In Bar Fight
The jury has spoken: LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and reserve linebacker Josh Johns will not face felony charges for their roles in a fight at a Baton Rouge bar. The Assistant DA in the case says, instead, Jefferson was indicted for simple battery; which is a misdemeanor, while Johns has been cleared. Jefferson's attorney Lewis Unglesby says his client won't be convicted on the charge. He says Jefferson is focusing now on playing football again with the Tigers. LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva's office says Jefferson & Johns have been reinstated and will practive with the team Thursday.
