Report: Mississippi State's Jeffery Simmons court details announced
Mississippi State’s notorious freshman defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons went to court Tuesday for his involvement in one of the worst domestic violence videos ever publicly released involving a football signee. At the time of the video, Simmons had yet to arrive to Starkville but had signed his letter of intent to play for MSU.
After everything was said and done, Simmons was ordered to pay $711 in restitution following his role in the troubling videotaped act of domestic violence towards a woman on the ground.
Here is the complete breakdown of Simmons case, courtesy of Daily Starkville beat reporter Joel Coleman:
- Simmons entered a no contest plea to simple assault and was fined $175. He was ordered to pay $711 in restitution.
- He was found guilty of malicious mischief and fined $300 and ordered to pay $125 in restitution.
- Disorderly conduct was dismissed.
- The complainant, Sophia Taylor, was found guilty of disturbing the peace fighting. And she was fined $225.
Simmons, a five-star recruit coming out of high school, is scheduled to serve a one-game suspension Sept. 3 against South Alabama for his role in the incident.
