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 (https://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.
