Time served at alcohol treatment center

BELLEFONTE, Pa.-- Former Penn State wide receiver Maurice
Humphrey will not go to jail for assaulting a former girlfriend and
her friend, a judge ruled Monday.

Humphrey, 20, of New Britain, Conn., was convicted of three
counts of simple assault for striking ex-girlfriend Jennifer Maline
and her friend Christopher Lolagne, whose jaw was fractured, on
Nov. 23 at the woman's apartment. Both victims are Penn State track
athletes.

Humphrey was sentenced June 8 to three to 12 months in prison,
but had been credited with two days spent in prison after his
arrest and 46 days spent at an alcohol treatment center. He was
scheduled to report to Centre County Prison on June 11 to serve the
remainder of the sentence, but instead returned to the treatment
center, and was released from there on Friday.

Judge David Grine ruled Monday that Humphrey's time in the
treatment center should count toward his sentence, making him free
to go.
