Last week, incoming Nebraska offensive tackle Alex Lewis appealed his 45 day sentence resulting from a 2013 incident where Lewis and former Colorado teammate Jordan Webb assaulted an Air Force Academy cadet in Boulder. In his motion, Lewis asked that his sentence be modified to permit him to attend summer classes and participate in "mandatory football drills" that start in June.
According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Lewis' motion was denied, as the judge already allowed Lewis to defer his sentence until after the spring semester was completed. Said Boulder District Judge Patrick Butler:
"He should not have registered for summer school knowing of this sentence. His football obligations and civil liability are not priorities for this court."
