BLACKSBURG, VA. (AP) - The lawyer for Cody Journell says the Virginia Tech kicker has reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to a reduced charge stemming from a December incident.
Journell was suspended from the football team after he was among three men charged with breaking and entering.
Attorney Jimmy Turk says Journell has agreed to plead to a misdemeanor trespassing charge. Turk says the plea will spare Journell of jail time but will require him to do 100 hours of community service.
The Roanoke Times (http://bit.ly/KLOAce) reports the plea deal will be completed in Montgomery County District Court on Monday.
As a sophomore, Journell was 14 of 17 on field goal attempts last season. Because of the arrest, he missed Virginia Tech's overtime loss to Michigan in the Sugar Bowl.
