Kenrick Ellis has agreed to a plea deal in the case stemming from an incident at Hampton University. The New York Jets drafted Kenrick Ellis in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft, as he fell into the third round because of concerns about the impending trial. Ellis will spend 90 days in jail. The Kenrick Ellis trial seems to be over before it ever really happened, after multiple delays.
The report that Kenrick Ellis has agreed to a plea deal comes directly from the attorney of the alleged victim in the case, S. Howard Woodson. The plea deal was to a lesser charge – assault and battery. Kenrick Ellis would spend 90 days in jail.
It also seems as though Kenrick Ellis will not be deported – a huge win for him personally, and for the Jets. It appears as though the Kenrick Ellis trial is done, now Ellis must serve his time. He may be able to serve his time in a way that allows him to fully participate in training camp. That remains to be seen.
