Mettenberger pleads guilty to sexual battery

POSTED: May 4, 2010 3:06 a.m.

VALDOSTA — Former University of Georgia quarterback Zach Mettenberger has been sentenced to 12 months' probation and a $2,000 fine after pleading guilty to two counts of misdemeanor sexual battery.

Lowndes County District Attorney J. David Miller told the Athens Banner-Herald that the 18-year-old grabbed the buttocks and breasts of a woman and was drinking underage at Remerton bar on March 7.

In a written statement provided by his attorney, Mettenberger apologized for his behavior. He said he hopes the woman involved "can move on with her life."

Other charges filed in the case — underage possession of alcohol, disorderly conduct, obstruction and possession of false identification — were dismissed in exchange for his guilty plea.

UGA coach Mark Richt kicked Mettenberger off the team April 18 following his arrest.
