Illini Linebacker Pleads Guilty to DUI

Ashante Williams, 21, has been sentenced to two years of court supervision after pleading guilty to driving under the influence. As part of his sentence, Williams is required to continue alcohol abuse treatment, 125 hours of community service and pay a $1250.00 fine.

Williams was arrested in July with a BAC of .177 percent, over twice the legal limit. He was suspended from the University of Illinois football team after his arrest but has since rejoined the team.

Court supervision is a non-conviction disposition in Illinois. The sentence will not appear on his public record if he completes the terms of his sentence satisfactorily.
