Former Notre Dame wide receiver Will Mahone pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor charges and was sentenced to 10 days in jail on Wednesday, according to the Youngstown Vindicator.

The four charges to which Mahone pleaded guilty: resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, assault and aggravated menacing. Mahone initially was charged with five offenses -- three of which were felonies -- when he was arrested on June 15 in nearby Austintown, Ohio.

“I just feel terrible about [the incident], every day,” Mahone said, via the Vindicator. “I just can’t say enough of how sorry I am.”

The judge in Mahone's case told the 20-year-old that he was giving him "much less of a sentence than I probably think is appropriate." Mahone was given two days credit toward his sentence for the time he spent in jail between when he was initially arrested and posted bond, and will be on probation for a year when he's released.

Coach Brian Kelly suspended Mahone indefinitely from the program June 16, and on July 7 it was revealed Mahone was no longer enrolled at Notre Dame. The former four-star recruit barely played with Notre Dame and converted from running back to slot receiver in the spring.
