Jets defensive end Sheldon Richardson pleads guilty, avoids jail time

New York Jets defensive end Sheldon Richardson avoided jail time for a high-speed chase, pleading guilty to resisting arrest. He could face a suspension under the NFL personal-conduct policy. He was sentenced to two years probation and 100 hours of community service for resisting arrest, a misdemeanor. He was fined $1,050. When he completes probation, his record will be expunged. Richardson served a four-game suspension to start the season for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy.
