FB Jefferson Guilty of DWI
Virginia Tech fullback Kenny Jefferson was convicted Wednesday of driving while intoxicated.
Jefferson, 22, of Port Tobacco, Md., received a 60-day suspended jail sentence in Montgomery County General District Court in Christiansburg, Va.. His driver’s license was conditionally suspended for a year, meaning he can drive to and from work, school and Alcohol Safety Action Program meetings. He was also ordered to pay a $250 fine.
Jefferson, a fifth-year senior, was suspended for the Hokies’ season opener against Alabama on Sept. 5 for a violation of team rules. He was charged with driving while intoxicated on Aug. 16. In court on Wednesday, he plead not guilty to the first-offense charge.
Also, Jefferson was cited for having tinted windows. He was scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 16.
While Jefferson is not an offensive weapon – he has not run the ball this season and has caught one pass for seven yards – he is an important blocker for running back Ryan Williams. Jefferson has played 66 offensive snaps this season. His backup, Kenny Younger, a fourth-year junior, has played 43 snaps.
