    He must not get arrested for a year. That's what it says in the ESPN article.

    What if he is falsely arrested? Does that count? What if he gets arrested for something he didn't do and the charges are dropped later?

    Yeah, but clearly he wasn't falsely accused or his attorney wouldn't be settling for a plea deal.

    I think he means in the future year. If he's falsely arrested (arrested and found later to not be him) does it still violate the stipulation?

    Good. I hope that he can put all this behind him and move forward with his life. Since I dont know him I can really speak for his character but I want to believe that he is a good kid and despite his troubled past he will make the best of this chance that he has been given.

    He took this deal because if he told what really happened his mother goes to jail.

    Typical probation term would say, "Commit no offense against the laws of this state or any other state." In that case, an arrest may not be a violation if there is a subsequent dismissal or no charges filed.

    That's what I understood as well. The title is misleading (not intentional though)

    So Pep, this is a pretty typical outcome for a first offense type case, right? Seems like you have a situation where, if convicted, the most likely outcome is a assignment to some form of diversion anyway. So much of this seems like the DA got the level of punishment they would have sought without going to court
