Oregon's Masoli Won't Face More Than a Three Game Suspension, Wait and See!

Updated 3:38 PM
Masoli pleads guilty. Kelly suspends Masoli for the 2010 season.

Proof Masoli won't get more than a slap on the wrist from Oregon coach Chip Kelly and at the most, a three game suspension to stat the season. Why the first three games? Because Oregon plays New Mexico, Tennessee and Portland State as their non-conference games and two of those games are at home against teams that are substantially weaker. By bringing Masoli back for the fourth game it gives Oregon the chance to win the Pac 10 conference title and with potentially only one loss at Tennessee, they can still play in the national championship hunt with no other losses.

What to expect from today's sentencing? How about a plea bargain and a three year probation.

From KEZI in Oregon

Local lawyer Greg Veralrud of Veralrud & Fowler Attorneys, thinks Masoli is looking at probation time. He said the charges can be treated upfront or after probation as a misdemeanor, and he said it looks like that's what the Lane County District Attorney's office will likely do.

Veralrud said the guidelines don't call for a prison sentence if it's your first offense. For Masoli, he has a prior record. Masoli pleaded guilty for robberies in and around San Mateo, Calif. in 2005. It resulted in his expulsion from Serra High and a stint in the juvenile detention center.

However, Veralrud said it has to be significant enough to put him behind bars which might not be the case. Veralrud said probation can still carry some jail time, but it generally means the offender can adhere to the conditions of probation.
