Brian Downing, the Alabama fan who “teabagged” a passed out LSU fan at a Krystal Burger in New Orleans following the 2012 BCS National Championship game, agreed to a plea bargain today of a two-year prison sentence. Per nola.com...
"He would have faced as much as a 10-year sentence and been forced to register as a sex offender if he were convicted on the sexual battery count.
He had earlier rejected a similar deal, but had a change a heart on the morning of trial.
Downing gave one-word responses as he answered questions from the judge about whether he understood the deal. His parents sat quietly in the gallery.
“I believe while we felt we had a strong case at trial, which we did, the fact is, if he lost he’d have to register as a sex offender,” Kennedy said after Downing’s plea.
“He has a one-year-old son. Is it worth the risk of never seeing a little league game or dropping your child off at school? He decided no.”
