Former UR football player pleads guilty to drug charge


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A former University of Richmond football player pleaded guilty Friday to a drug possession charge.

Jeremiah Hamlin pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and was sentenced to five years with all time suspended. He will not serve any jail time, though he did lose his license for six months.

Hamlin was previously charged with possession of a controlled substance on school property as well, but that charged was essentially dropped.

Hamlin was a sophomore running back with the Spiders. He is no longer enrolled with Richmond University and is no longer a member of the football team, school officials told 8News last year.
