INDIANAPOLIS — Purdue basketball player Lewis Jackson will have to complete community service and spend a year under court supervision after pleading guilty to charges of illegal alcohol consumption and possession of drug paraphernalia. Jackson made the plea Monday during a court hearing in Piatt County, Ill. The 19-year-old Jackson was arrested April 12 after he was stopped for speeding on Interstate 72 near his hometown of Decatur, Ill. Assistant state’s attorney Jerry Johnson says that charges of illegal alcohol possession and possession of less than 2.5 grams of marijuana were dropped in the plea agreement. Purdue coach Matt Painter has not yet announced any team discipline of Jackson. ______ Copyright 2009 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
