Former Duke Star, J.J. Redick, Gets Probation for DWI

Basketball player J.J. Redick pleaded guilty to a drunk driving charge he received last June while on the Duke campus in Durham, North Carolina. The former Duke star, and first round draft pick of the NBA Orlando Magic, received a one year probation and had his driver’s license suspended for 60 days for the DWI offense. He also was required to pay $410 in court costs and fees and he must serve 24 hours of community service.

The North Carolina District Court allowed Redick to do his community service in Central Florida, near his new team’s facilities.

Redick was to appear in court on October 24 but he and his North Carolina DWI defense attorney entered a plea in order to put the issue behind him. "I’m just glad this is over," Redick said, "I made a mistake. I apologized, and I’ve learned a valuable lesson from this."

Redick must complete his community service for the DWI within the next 90 days.
