A BYU football player arrested in February for underage drinking has resolved his case by completing a substance abuse class and entering a guilty plea in abeyance to a Class B misdemeanor charge of having a measurable amount of alcohol on his breath.
According to court records, junior running back Jamaal Williams, who turned 19 on April 3, entered his plea on May 7 in Utah County Justice Court and was given credit for completing a "Prime for Life" course. He also paid $200 of a $300 fine.
A pleas in abeyance is an admission of guilt that is put on hold while the person charged completes the requirements ordered by the judge. Upon completion of the terms, the guilty plea is withdrawn and the charges are dismissed.
