Florida football: Gators wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. sentenced to probation, fine in DUI case

Suspended last month from all team activities


GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. has been sentenced to probation as part of a plea deal in a DUI case.

Hammond was sentenced Friday and ordered to pay a $500 fine and court costs, perform 50 hours of community service, and serve a 12-month probationary sentence.

The 20-year-old sophomore was suspended last month from all team activities following his arrest on DUI and alcohol possession charges. University police said he was speeding, swerving and driving with two open bottles of whiskey in his car.

Hammond was expected to be part of Florida’s revamped receiving corps this season. He will likely miss some playing time due to his arrest.
