LSU's leading rusher Jeremy HIll has been reinstated by the team after a Monday court ruling that extended his probation without him having to do any jail time, reports Jerry Hinnen of CBSSports.com.
Hill may be out of the water legally and was welcome back at practice, but he'll face an 'internal' punishment from the team, head coach Les Miles said.
Hill was reinstated after a vote by the team, Miles explained. His return also involved an apology to the team as well as a pledge to be a better person on and off the field.
Jeremy had been on probation after pleading guilty to "carnal knowledge of a juvenile" back in high school when he punched a man outside a Baton Rouge bar in April. Prosecutor's were asking the judge to revoke his probation and send him to jail. Hill said that he "let my emotions get the best of me" at the April incident, in which he's seen on video laughing after punching the man.
At Monday's court date, State District Judge Bonnie Jackson ordered Hill to perform 40 hours of community service and renewed restrictions on his probation, which already included a 9 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew. Exceptions to the curfew could be made now that he's been reinstated by the team.
BEST OF MAXIM

Les Miles had a tough decision to make in regards to running back Jeremy Hill. Now that his legal case was resolved (no jail time, two more years of probation, 40 additional hours of community service, and curfew restrictions) stemming from an incident in April when he was caught on camera sucker-punching someone outside of a bar it was time for Miles to do something.

He said it couldn’t compete with grass in the south, especially in Baton Rouge.
