Kentucky Wildcats sophomore defensive end Jason Hatcher has had his marijuana case dismissed in Louisville, according to Kyle Tucker of the Louisville Courier Journal.
Hatcher’s marijuana possession case has been dismissed in Jefferson County court after the sophomore from Trinity High School completed a marijuana education course, according to records.
“He’s never had any sort of criminal charge before in his life,” said Hatcher’s attorney, Scott C. Cox. “His case is scheduled to be expunged on Aug. 18.”
Hatcher and Louisville Cardinals sophomore wide receiver James Quick were cited for possession of marijuana last week. The incident happened after UL police responded to a complaint of marijuana odor in Quick’s apartment building.
Police noted 39.5 grams of marijuana, a digital scale and marijuana grinder in Quick’s possession. Hatcher was cited for 2.5 grams of marijuana in his pocket when police arrived. He appeared in court on June 16 and his case was dismissed. Quick still has a July 7 court date.
In 10 games as a true freshman, Hatcher notched 19 tackles and two sacks. He missed one game due to injury, and was suspended for an undisclosed violation of team rules before the Georgia game.
This is good news for Hatcher, who’s already got one strike against him for whatever he did to get suspended for one game last year. It’s still unclear though as to what UK head coach Mark Stoops has planned for disciplining Hatcher.
