BATON ROUGE - Former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson pleaded "no contest" to a simple battery charge this morning, which will allow him to leave parish prison sometime today.
Jefferson still faces marijuana possession charges after police said they found him and three other former LSU players at Tyrann Mathieu's apartment last week with drugs and equipment to package and sell them. The arrested caused a judge to revoke his prior bond to the simple battery charge, which stemmed from a 2011 bar fight.
Today, the judge sentenced Jefferson to 30 hours of community service for the simple battery plea. He said he'd like Jefferson to serve it at local schools, talking to students and graduating football players about what it's like playing at the college level.
Jefferson said in court the whole situation has opened his eyes. He's scheduled to be back in court Jan. 25 for the judge to check his progress, and will have to take random drug tests.
Jefferson's arraignment on the marijuana charge is scheduled for Dec. 12.
