High School Football Star Could Get Plea Deal In Body Slamming Assault

DETROIT (WWJ) – A plea bargain is in the works for  Cass Tech football player Jayru Campbell, accused of felony assault against a school security guard.

Judge Timothy Kenney, reading for the record in his 3rd Circuit Court Room in Detroit, said he’d announce “a final resolution” in the case on May 2nd.

“It’s my understanding that the prosecutor’s office has proposed a resolution of this particular matter short of a trial,” Kenny said. “And I’m also aware that this morning some background information on Mr. Campbell has provided to me, and it’s information that obviously will require some time to evaluate and digest.”

The Circuit Court’s Chief Judge says he’ll be considering whether to sentence Campbell under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act. If Campbell meets certain requirements during a period of time, there would be no charge on his record.

Campbell is accused of body slamming a school security guard, reportedly after being asked repeatedly to remove his hood in the building. The incident was caught on cell phone video.

Campbell stood silent in court on Friday and there was no comment from his attorney.

The star player has signed a letter of commitment to attend and play ball at MSU starting in 2015.
