DEVELOPING: Former UGA AD Evans Gets 12 Months Probation

An attorney for former UGA athletic director Damon Evans says that he has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and was sentenced to a year of probation, a $750 fine and community service.

Evans resigned last July four days after he was pulled over by a Georgia state trooper in Atlanta, literally minutes before his new contract was to kick in that would have paid him over half-a-million dollars a year. Evans' attorney, Steve Weiner, said his client appeared in Atlanta Municipal Court back on January 19th, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to what we talked about in Paragraph 1.

Weiner says Evans was ordered to undergo an alcohol and drug evaluation and participate in a panel for MADD- Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
