Alonso Pleads Guilty to Charges

Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso was sentenced to two years probation, 200 hours of community service and intense alcohol treatment by Judge Maurice Merten after Alonso pleaded guilty to charges of criminal mischief and criminal trespass on Friday morning according to

Kiko Alonso was arrested last Sunday by police after a woman called 911 to report a stranger entering her residence. The victim, who was in court today, had attended the Oregon spring football game played last Saturday but did not know or recognize Alonso when he rang her door bell and knocked on the door. She indicated today that she told Alonso that he was at the wrong house but Alonso indicated he was at the right house. She became frightened according the KVAL report and called the police. When police arrived the found Alonso in a second story bedroom and was a confused and disoriented state.

Alonso was initially charge with felony burglary but prosecutors told KVAL that there was insufficient evidence to formally charge the Oregon football player on the felony count.

Alonso is to report to the Lane County Jail and start his sentence which must be completed within 30-days of the end of his probation. A diversion was also issued for the criminal trespass charge if he completes the terms of the sentence within 180 days.

Alonso served a one-year suspension from the football team because of a DUI charge last spring. Another of the conditions of Alonso's sentence today is that he must not possess or consume alcohol.

Alonso is now suspended indefinitely from the Ducks' squad and the Oregon football program has not made any follow up statement regarding Alonso since the suspension announcement earlier this week.
