SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Quarterback Tommy Rees is apologizing to the police, Notre Dame and fans after pleading guilty to misdemeanor resisting law enforcement and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor.
Reese issued a statement after entering his guilty pleas Monday. He says he accepts full responsibility for his actions May 3 when he was arrested outside an off-campus party in South Bend, Ind.
Under a plea agreement, the 20-year-old junior quarterback will perform 50 hours of community service and write a letter of apology to police. He also received a 30-day suspended jail sentence and 11 months of probation.
Prosecutors have agreed to dismiss one count of resisting law enforcement and a battery count.
Reese says he's dedicated to winning back the trust and confidence of the people he has disappointed.
