ROCHESTER — Former University of Notre Dame wide receiver Kevin Stepherson was sentenced Monday after violating his probation in December.

Stepherson was sentenced to 180 days in Fulton County jail, according to the superior court. With time served he still has about 47 days left to serve.

The former Irish football player was first arrested in August when he and four teammates were pulled over in Fulton County. Stepherson was charged with possession of marijuana, but took a plea agreement to have the charges removed if he stayed out of trouble for one year.

But in December, he was pulled over in Marshall County and again charged with possession of marijuana. He was also charged with speeding and driving without a valid driver's license. He was arrested again at Macy's in Mishawaka for reportedly trying to shoplift a pair of Nautica sweatpants. He was charged with conversion in St. Joseph County.

Then he was arrested in Whitley County, again for possession of marijuana.
