Ex-USF WR Mitchell reaches plea agreement
Former USF and Hillsborough receiver Terrence Mitchell has reached a plea agreement on the charges he faced from an August arrest, agreeing Monday to one year of probation and fines and court costs totaling $1,382.
Mitchell, 22, who hasn't been part of USF's football program since being suspended this spring after a previous arrest, faced charges of driving under the influence (blood-alcohol level above 0.15), assault on an emergency care provider and driving with a suspended license with knowledge. Under the agreement, he pleaded "no contest" to all counts, and according to court documents, he was judged to be guilty on the DUI and license charges, both misdemeanors, with adjudication withheld on the assault charge.
In addition to his probation, Mitchell agreed to pay a $500 fine, $443 in court costs and make donations of $201 to a domestic violence trust fund and $151 to a rape crisis trust fund, plus surcharges.
Mitchell was expected to transfer to Fort Hays State for this season, but did not join the team this fall. Fort Hays assistant Al McCray said Wednesday that he expects Mitchell to enroll in January, and he'll still have two years of eligibility at the Division II program.
