Former Michigan State Spartans guard star Keith Appling accepted a plea deal on July 3rd that will require him to spend a year in jail in connection with gun-related incident in August of 2016, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The good news for Appling is, while the most recent incident was his third gun-related charge, the first two charges were dropped as part of the plea deal. Appling's charges for third-degree fleeing a police officer and felony firearm possession were also dropped as part of the agreement.
This could have been much worse for Appling, but he’ll still have to spend a year in jail. The sentence agreement also requires Appling to spend five years on probation.
Hopefully, this helps Appling get his life turned around for the better.
