Update on Jeremy Hill's probation hearing
NEW ORLEANS - A lawyer for suspended LSU running back Jeremy Hill has arranged a meeting with a judge in Baton Rouge on Monday, when Hill could learn whether he'll be jailed or remain on probation under terms allowing him to play football.
District Attorney Hillar Moore says a judge has granted defense lawyer Marci Blaize's request for a meeting on what is also the first day of LSU practice.
Hill, who was LSU's top rusher last season, was caught on video punching a man outside a bar last spring. Hill pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery - a violation of his probation from an earlier misdemeanor plea.
If the judge keeps Hill out of jail, it will be up to LSU coach Les Miles to decide whether to reinstate him.
