CU QB sentenced to probation

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 06, 2013
University of Colorado backup quarterback Jordan Webb was sentenced on Friday to two years of probation for a May fight that left an Air Force Academy cadet unconscious. The 22-year-old also was ordered to perform 80 hours of community service and get alcohol treatment, The Daily Camera reported. He pleaded guilty to third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, last week in exchange for prosecutors dropping felony assault charges. Former Colorado offensive lineman Alex Lewis, who has transferred to Nebraska, still faces a second-degree assault charge, a felony, in the case. He hasn't entered a plea yet. Witnesses told police that Lewis pushed Lee Bussey's head into a brick wall and that both Webb and Lewis pushed the cadet to the ground and punched him. Prosecutor Bruce Langer said Webb was given a plea deal because authorities believe Webb played a lesser role. Webb told Judge Patrick Butler that he shoved Bussey but said he was only trying to break up the fight. "My role was minimal at best, but I take full responsibility and I shouldn't have put myself in that type of situation," Webb said. "I'm not a violent person and I never have been." Butler told Webb he was "involved enough" and said he was fortunate that prosecutors offered him the chance to plead guilty to a misdemeanor. Lewis is scheduled for an arraignment on Sept. 20.
