Oregon's Kiko Alonso avoids jail time
EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of trespassing and criminal mischief stemming from his arrest last Sunday.
Alonso was sentenced Friday morning in Lane County Circuit Court to two years of probation, 200 hours of community service and alcohol treatment.
Alonso, 20, was arrested after he broke into a stranger's home last weekend. Police found him sleeping in a bed there.
Oregon coach Chip Kelly suspended Alonso indefinitely after his arrest.
The junior was also suspended by Kelly for all of last season after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants.
The Ducks went 12-1, claiming the Pacific-10 title before falling to Auburn in the BCS Championship Game in January.
Although he was allowed to practice with the team last season, Alonso was limited while he recovered from knee surgery.
The junior was a projected starter this season, replacing Casey Matthews at middle linebacker. His arrest came hours after he played in Oregon's annual spring game.
