The notorious hit on a referee during a September football game between John Jay and Marble Falls high schools has resulted in a criminal conviction.
Burnet County attorney Eddie Arredondo announced in a press release that former John Jay High School assistant coach Mack Breed plead guilty to assault causing bodily injury, a Class A misdemeanor.
Breed turned himself in at the Marble Falls Police Department today and entered his plea this afternoon after reaching a deal that keeps him out of jail for a year.
Arredondo says in a press release that Breed was sentenced to 12 months in Burnet County Jail and received a $3,500 fine. However, under the deal, Breed was placed on probation for 18 months; he must surrender his Texas Teaching Certificate; Breed must complete an anger management program; he must perform 120 hours of community service; and Breed has to pay restitution to the referee.
