NEW ORLEANS (AP) — 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 remain on probation under terms allowing him to play football.
District Attorney Hillar Moore says the judge has granted defense lawyer Marci Blaize’s request to move a probation review hearing up from Aug. 16.
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.
If the judge decides against a subsequent probation revocation hearing, Hill’s fate at LSU will be up to coach Les Miles, whose team starts practice on Monday.
