Marshal University Football Players Plead Guilty to Possession of Marijuana

with one comment

Huntingtonnews.net recently reported that two starters of the Marshall University football team entered guilty pleas to possession of Marijuana charges this last Monday May 11th.  The two Marshall University football players implicated are Darius Marshall and DeQuan Starling.  The judge that oversaw the cases, Magistrate Darrell Black, sentenced both players to six months of unsupervised probation.  Under current state law, both players will be able to remove any record of the cases upon completion of probation.

Originally, the two players were busted by police while smoking marijuana in a curbside parked car.  The nature of the crime would have warranted that the incident be treated as a felony rather than a misdemeanor, but as admitted by both players, they “dodged a bullet.” However, the Marshall University football players weren’t as lucky on the filed as both were suspended indefinitely from playing.  Before the incident, tailback Darius Marshall was considered an NFL prospect, leading the team last year in rushing with 1,117 yards and five touchdowns, but it will be unclear as tohow severely the situation will affect him until he comes up for the draft.  Here at DanJ09, we wish the two football players the best and hope they are able to get help and return to the game soon.
