University of Maine football player Ramon Jefferson, who in May pleaded guilty to criminal mischief at the Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor, is leaving the program, according to Bangor Daily.
The running back from the Bronx, New York, who had spent two years at the university, is transferring to another school, according to the report.
The 19-year-old Jefferson pleaded guilty on May 8 to criminal mischief, a Class D crime, and was fined $250. He also was ordered to pay $500 in restitution to replace a broken cell phone.
Jefferson was the top running back for Maine. Jefferson led Maine with 1,037 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, helping the Black Bears to the Football Championship Subdivision semifinals.
