Mikel Leshoure Pleads Guilty To Misdemeanor Marijuana Possession Charge

Mikel Leshoure was in court on Friday and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge stemming from his March run-in with the law. Originally, he was hit with a felony charge of marijuana possession, which he pleaded not guilty to back in April. By pleading guilty to a lesser charge, Leshoure can now try to put this issue behind him.

He paid $575 in fines and will be required next May to show proof of compliance with a treatment program conducted through the NFL.

According to Leshoure's lawyer, the treatment program is 24 months long and includes testing 2-3 times a week by the NFL. The frequency of the tests will decrease over time, but at the beginning of the program, he will be looking at 2-3 tests each week.

It remains to be seen what kind of punishment Leshoure could receive from the NFL for his offseason legal problems. A suspension is possible, but so far there has been no word on what to expect on that front.
