Kenrick Ellis entered an “Alford plea” to his reduced misdemeanor charge of assault and battery from a 2010 incident while he was still in school. The sentence is set to begin June 15th.

The sentence was for 179 days, 89 suspended. Virgina law says he will serve half of it, which is approximately 45 days, to start June 15th.

He was charged with a malicious wounding, a felony. The plea down, the “alford plea”, means he maintains his innocence, but there is enough evidence out there for him to be convicted. He will also have 2 years of unsupervised probation, and the sentence will force him to miss the first four days of training camp.

We wish Kenrick all the best as he works on putting his past behind him.
