Tyreek Hill Pleads Guilty, Receives Three Years of Probation For December 2014 Domestic Assault


Former Cowboys running back Tyreek Hill was in Payne County District Court on Friday, eight months after being arrested and kicked off the team for a domestic violence assault charge against his then-pregnant girlfriend.

Hill, 21, received a sentence of three years probation, according to The Oklahoman’s Kyle Fredrickson.

Should Hill complete his probation without incident, he’ll avoid any prison time and have the charge expunged from his record, according to his attorney Jay Husbands. The removal of the charge also means he will not be a convicted felon. However, if Hill screws up during his probation, it will likely result in a three year prison sentence.

Hill was arrested back on Dec. 11, just days after returning a punt return for a touchdown and forcing overtime in the Cowboys’ 2014 Bedlam victory. His eight-weeks pregnant girlfriend told police that Hill attacked her following an argument at his residence, and he was subsequently charged with a felony count of domestic abuse by strangulation, and kicked off the football and track teams shortly after. Hill, the 2014 preseason Big 12 Newcomer of the Year, led all OSU players in all-purpose yardage last season with 1,811, and was named to the All-Big 12 First Team by the Associated Press.

Hill later announced in April that he was enrolling at Akron, but is apparently yet to join the roster.
