BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Suspended LSU running back Jeremy Hill has pleaded guilty to simple battery in connection with a bar fight in April.
Hill entered the plea Friday in state district court in Baton Rouge. He will not have to go to jail for the fight, but his future remains in question. He faces the possible revocation of the probation he was granted following a January 2012 guilty plea to a misdemeanor stemming from his sexual relationship with a then-14-year-old girl at his high school.
District Attorney Hillar Moore says it will be up to a judge to decide whether Hill should serve the suspended six-month sentence in that earlier case.
A hearing would likely be set for August. Coach Les Miles, who suspended Hill after the bar fight, was not immediately available for comment.
