Former University of Georgia quarterback Zach Mettenberger has been sentenced to 12 months' probation and a $2,000 fine after pleading guilty to two counts of misdemeanor sexual battery.
Lowndes County District Attorney J. David Miller told the Athens Banner-Herald that the 18-year-old grabbed the buttocks and breasts of a woman and was drinking underage at Remerton bar on March 7.
In a written statement provided by his attorney, Mettenberger apologized for his behavior. He said he hopes the woman involved ''can move on with her life''
Other charges filed in the case, underage possession of alcohol, disorderly conduct, obstruction and possession of false identification, were dismissed in exchange for his guilty plea.
UGA coach Mark Richt kicked Mettenberger off the team April 18 following his arrest.
