Former SU football player may not serve prison time after guilty plea

A former Syracuse University football player has pleaded guilty to a burglary charge, but he won’t have to spend time behind bars in a state prison if he manages to stay trouble free.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – A former Syracuse University football player has pleaded guilty to a burglary charge, but he won’t have to spend time behind bars in a state prison if he manages to stay trouble free.

Davon Wall pleaded guilty to burglary in the third degree – a felony – which normally carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence.

Instead, he was promised a term of one year interim probation.

If he avoids trouble, the court will revisit the felony charge and reduce it to a misdemeanor, which will lead to one-year conditional discharge or up to three years’ probation.

In March, Wall was one of four men charged with burglary in connection to incidents that were reported on the Syracuse University campus.

One other football player – Markus Pierce-Brewster – was charged, along with Erwing Augustin and Bradley Valik.

Police said the men stole Xbox video game systems, televisions, a Playstation video game system, and games from the residences on Winding Ridge Road, which is on the SU campus, on Feb. 23.
