Two LSU football players facing legal issues got some resolution of their cases Monday and were expected to participate in practice.
East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore told The Advocate’s Ross Dellenger that charges against LSU offensive lineman Adrian Magee stemming from an alleged incident of simple burglary of an uninhabited dwelling were dismissed.
Moore also told Dellenger that running back Lanard Fournette will enter a pretrial diversion program after Fournette was arrested in May for allegedly being caught gambling with a fake ID.
Per Dellenger, both players were expected to take part in drills during LSU’s preseason camp on Monday.
Fournette is in a program for first-time offenders that offers counseling sessions, Moore told Dellenger.
Meanwhile, per Dellenger, the victim of the alleged theft involving Magee asked that charges be dismissed. Magee rejoined the Tigers this summer after a brief suspension. He could receive more punishment from LSU coach Ed Orgeron, per Dellenger.
Magee allegedly stole an Xbox and $1,200 in cash, among other things.
