Jalen Carter, top NFL Draft prospect, pleads no contest to reckless driving, racing charges

Mar 17, 2023

Former Georgia defensive lineman and top NFL Draft prospect Jalen Carter has pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and racing in connection to a January crash that killed one of his Georgia teammates and another staff member, his attorney said in a statement Thursday.

Carter, 21, was sentenced to 12 months probation and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine after entering no-contest pleas to both charges stemming from his alleged conduct in the Jan. 15 crash that resulted in the deaths of Georgia offensive lineman Devin Willock and recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy.

"We are happy that we were able to work with the Solicitor General's office to reach a resolution that was fair and just based on the evidence in this case," attorney Kim Stephens said in the statement.
