if everyone that punched someone in the face got kicked off the team it would be a WNBA event out there.
You aren't understanding why he's in trouble. It's not so much for the punch, it's for incident with the 14-year-old girl.
That WAS a sexual charge originally, wasn't it? He pled guilty to a lesser charge and was put in probation.
Now, he violated the probation. Will the court system treat it as a violation of a misdemeanor probation, or as a guy who was charged with a more serious crime, then violated probation on a lesser charge.
In other words, will he be treated the same as a guy who's on probation for a crime that was a misdemeanor from the original charge. Let's say a guy who's caught vandalizing property by spray painting stuff on walls. He gets put on probation and gets in a bar fight during probation. Is he treated the same as a guy who's on probation after pleading down from a felony sex offense?
I don't know the answer to that question. Some Rant lawyers would have to chime in. But I do suspect the guy who pleads down from a felony sexual assault charge won't be treated the same as a guy whose original charge that eventually led to his probation was a somewhat innocuous vandalism charge.
