We already told you that the trial for Albert Haynesworth on a misdemeanor sexual assault charge was set to commence Tuesday. Apparently, that no longer will be necessary.
According to the Washington Post, Haynesworth has changed his plea from not guilty of sexual assault to a no contest plea of simple assault. Instead of serving what could have been a six-month jail stint if he had been found guilty, he will serve 160 hours of community service.
Also part of the agreement: Haynesworth must undergo an alcohol abuse and a psychological assessment within 18 months. If he does that, his record will be cleared. He also must stay from the alleged victim.
On his way into the courtroom, Haynesworth didn't comment when questioned by reporters, but he did manage to let loose a "Go Patriots!"
