ROCHESTER, Ind. (AP) Notre Dame senior middle linebacker Te'von Coney pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana Tuesday and was given a year of probation for an incident that happened nearly two years ago.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Wayne Steele accepted a plea deal and put Coney on probation from 363 days, suspending a 180-day jail sentence with time served (one day) while vacating an Aug. 1 trial date.
Coney is attending summer classes at Notre Dame and working out with his teammates. Earlier this month, coach Brian Kelly told the South Bend Tribune that Coney would be back "if he takes care of it (the court case) in the manner I expect him to . we're not going to wait until Aug. 1 for all this stuff."
