Patrick pleads guilty to harassment, expects to remain on football team

Facing a fourth-degree misdemeanor assault charge stemming from a June 27 incident with his girlfriend, U of L senior cornerback Johnny Patrick pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of harassment with physical contact on Wednesday.

Patrick told The Courier-Journal - which is waiting for a comment from Charlie Strong - that he expects to remain on as a member of the football team.

Patrick has an active streak of 26 straight starts and is listed first at corner on the current U of L depth chart. As a result of his plea this morning he will enter into a diversion program and be subject to counseling.
