DT Campbell gets 3 months probation

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan defensive tackle Will Campbell was sentenced on Friday to three months of probation and a day of community service on a misdemeanor charge of malicious destruction of property.

Campbell, a 6-foot-5, 322-pound senior, pled guilty on June 14 in a case that involved him sliding across the hood of a 2003 Lincoln Town Car in early April.

Campbell will perform his community service at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital to be completed by Nov. 1. His probationary costs are $25 per month and Campbell will also have to pay $250 in fines and court costs and $2,100 in restitution by Oct. 1.

Judge Chris Easthope said he believed Campbell didn’t have any kind of malicious intent and was rather “caught up in the moment.”

When asked about Campbell’s sentencing at Big Ten media days in Chicago, Michigan coach Brady Hoke indicated that this will end Campbell’s punishment.

Campbell appeared in all 13 games last season and had 14 tackles and two sacks. He’s expected to start this season after heavy graduation losses along the defensive line.
