Pre-trial agreement for safety Williams

USF safety Carlton Williams, arrested in March on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer without violence, has entered into a pre-trial intervention program for first-time offenders.

Under the terms of the agreement, if Williams completed 32 hours of community service, pays $460 in fees, writes a letter of apology to the arresting officer and finishes up to six months of probation without problems, the charges will be dropped from his record.

USF cornerback Mike Jenkins, arrested at the same time on the same charges as Williams, was arraigned in county court Thursday and entered a written plea of not guilty. As a first-time offender, Jenkins would be eligible for a similar pre-trial agreement. Neither player is expected to face any suspension from USF as a result of the arrests.
