Per the Tallahassee Democrat, Johnson will participate in a 10-day sheriff’s work program in the state of Florida and serve six months of probation. He also pleaded guilty, and will pay about $700 in court fees and provide $199.98 of restitution to the victim as part of the deal. His punishment will be completed in Florida, not Mississippi.
“He hasn’t gotten into any trouble since then and prior to this incident,” Johnson’s lawyer Jose Baez told the Tallahassee Democrat. “Everyone who knows De’Andre will clearly tell you this is something that was very out of character.”
