Alexander has a redshirt season, and one year of eligbility remaining.
"I think this is a good resolution to the case," said Shannon R. Demler, who represented Alexander. "We're hoping that we can get Maurice back in school and doing more productive things with his life than sitting in jail."
Alexander was picked up on a bench warrant in his hometown of St. Louis for failure to appear in court to answer the original charge. He will be sentenced on July 30, where the hope is that he will receive credit for time served.
Demler told the Tribune that he expects for Alexander to be ordered to undergo counseling or anger management. Alexander is also expected to be required to pay restitution to the victim by covering his medical bill.
"We think this is a good resolution," Demler said. "Hopefully the young man can learn from this bad experience. There will likely be counseling and a fine, but hopefully there will be no more jail time."
Alexander was released on his own recognizance, Monday. Andersen declined official comment, but told the Tribune that Alexander would have to pay his own way, if he were to return to Utah State.
Last season, Alexander spent signficant time as USU's starting outside linebacker, and eventually became one of Utah State's best pass rushers and better overall defenders.
