The Detroit News

Detroit – — A troubled high school quarterback on Wednesday pleaded guilty to violating his probation.

Jayru Campbell, who played for Cass Tech High, will be sentenced Tuesday in Wayne County Circuit Court, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office said.

He is being held at the Wayne County Jail.

Campbell, 17, had been sentenced to 60 days in jail and placed on probation after slamming a school security guard to the floor in January.


October 3rd 2014 Detroit Michigan: This is Jayru Campbell during his preliminary hearing on Oct. 3.

On the day he was released from jail Sept. 12, he violated his probation by allegedly assaulting his girlfriend at the school.

In the latter case, he is charged with domestic violence assault, a misdemeanor.

A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Nov. 7.

In the case, two other counts, unarmed robbery and assault with intent to do great bodily harm, were dismissed during a preliminary exam earlier this month.

The prosecutor's office will appeal the dropping of the two charges, which were felonies.
