Delmon Young pleads guilty to aggravated harassment, gets community service

7 Comments

The 2012 season was kicked off in style as Delmon Young got drunk and walked down a New York street yelling anti-Semitic garbage at people. It became a tabloid sensation in New York and he was charged with a hate crime.  The matter has been settled now, however, with a plea that his beef busted down to aggravated harassment, and may be reduced even lower (see below). And he gets some fun community service out of it too:

I haven’t seen the plea, but I just spoke to someone with knowledge of it and it’s apparently a “re-pleader” deal. Which means that if he does his community service as ordered, he will come to court next May and have his conviction reduced to a lesser charge.
