Grant was sentenced to a year of probation and fined $500 plus surcharges following his guilty plea. He also was ordered to submit to testing for sexually transmitted diseases within 45 days, a standard sentencing requirement for pandering.
The 22-year-old junior from Colquitt, GA had initially pleaded not guilty and requested a jury trial, scheduled for next month in Athens-Clarke County, GA State Court.
Grant is the third player to be suspended from the Arkansas State game by new Georgia head coach Mark Richt.
All-Southeastern Conference cornerback Tim Wansley will miss the game for breaking unspecified team rules, and tight end Randy McMichael can not play in the game as a result of his role in a June 15 bar fight.
"It's never an easy job to suspend a player for any reason," Richt said in a press release. "But there are certain standards for being a citizen of the (Athens) community, a student at the University of Georgia and a member of our football team. Those standards must be adhered to."
Grant played both offense and defense as a freshman at Georgia (1999). The 267-pounder tore a ligament in his right knee while playing running back in that year's regular season finale against Georgia Tech.
Grant was exclusively a defensive player last season, starting nine games. He made 40 tackles, including two sacks and eight for losses.
