Michigan wide receiver Darryl Stonum sentenced to 10 days in jail for violating probation

By Lee Higgins

Michigan wide receiver Darryl Stonum was sentenced this morning to 10 days in jail after he admitted that he violated probation on a conviction for operating while visibly impaired second-offense.

Stonum, 21, was charged with violating probation after being ticketed Thursday morning by Ann Arbor police for driving on a revoked license.

He was pulled over after stopping at a probation office downtown, where he lied to a probation officer, telling him that a female friend had dropped him off in the area. Stonum was charged with the violation because of the ticket and lie, said Stonum's probation officer, Steve Hill.

While Stonum admitted in 15th District Court today that he violated probation, he said he wasn't aware of any infractions on his Texas driver's license that would prohibit him from driving. Judge Charles Pope said Stonum will have to convince the court that he can continue in the sobriety court program.

"Nobody did this to you," Pope said. "You did this to yourself."

Officers led Stonum away and took him to a cell.

Pope said earlier that Stonum has had four alcohol-related encounters with the criminal justice system, which he called "extremely unusual" for someone Stonum's age, putting him among less than one percent of the population.

"The part that's the worst is your deceit about it," Pope said.

"Trust is the easiest thing to lose, and the hardest thing to regain Darryl, and that's the situation you're in."

Pope said the court has no record of Stonum attending any 12-step meetings in the past two weeks, which is required. Pope also said Stonum has "yet to pay a dime" for fines and fees he owes for probation. In addition, he told Stonum that he's not eligible to apply for a driver's license.

When Stonum was sentenced in June to two years probation, it was clear he could spend time behind bars if he violated probation. He received a suspended sentence of 365 days in jail, meaning he could have to serve a portion or all of that sentence if he violated probation.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke said Thursday afternoon that there has been no change in Stonum's status. Stonum, who is from Stafford, Texas, redshirted this season to deal with his legal issues.

"Until we know everything, it hasn’t changed," Hoke said Thursday at a previously scheduled season wrap-up news conference. When asked if he was concerned about Stonum's decision-making, Hoke simply replied, "No."

Stonum was Michigan's second-leading receiver in the 2010 season with 49 catches for 633 yards and four touchdowns.

Stonum is scheduled to return to court Jan. 20.

Tell me didn't learn within hours about Stonum's latest arrest because of somebody at the Probation Department, and I will return to believing in the blindfold on the statue of Justice. This daily website frequently reports crime news days or even weeks after the event, but not this time.


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 5:01 p.m.

Call me naive, but what in the world does this have to do with football and his scholarship? You people seem quite vicious. If any other student, staff, or faculty member was in this situation the university wouldn't even know, much less throw them out, fire them, or revoke their scholarship. If I was stupid enough to drive drunk and my job had nothing to do with driving I wouldn't lose my job. This is football, not national security. Young males are really stupid and impulsive, the court system is dealing with it. Why punish him more than anyone else?


Sun, Jan 8, 2012 : 1:57 a.m.

Alan, There are responsibilities in life. When you accept a scholarship from a University you agree to represent that university. Is this conduct representative of UM? Hoke has the answer. Can't wait to find out what it is?\.

Craig Lounsbury

Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 11:24 p.m.

I think the answer to your question is..."This is football, not national security." The yearly attendance at all 12 Michigan football games averages just about the same number as our combined standing Military, excluding reserves. "If any other student, staff, or faculty member was in this situation the university wouldn't even know, much less throw them out, fire them, or revoke their scholarship"....because nobody else attracts 110,000 screaming spectators and a couple million more watching on TV. Try selling tickets to an Earth Science Lab and let me know how it goes. and I do think if a nursing student was caught stealing prescription drugs he/she would get kicked off "the team"


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 6:56 p.m.

Thanks but that doesn't answer my question.


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 5:35 p.m.

It's human nature. mLive reported over 700 posts by our own UM slappies over the rigamarole with Spartans and the law last year. Don't know why we should be slamming them and not expecting the same on the other end.


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 2:58 a.m.

It was reported in another article on mLive that (1) Stonum is a two-time felon, and (2) that the only Big Ten teams that allow felons to play are UM and OSU. Anybody know if either of these are really true?


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 2:03 a.m.

This guy is a lying, manipulative, arrogant punk, and 10 days in the slammer is not going to teach this jerk a lesson. Sure, he played MI football, but he has lost the chance to represent the UM on the football field. Cut him loose from UM, his scholarship and Ann Arbor. Anyone else in this situation would have received a far longer jail sentence. Enough of this "slap on the wrist" justice for UM football players. Don't let the door hit ya on the way out of town.


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 5:10 p.m.

He is all of those things. Also has an alcohol problem and like to drive drunk. Not exactly a poster child for the Michigan Student Athlete.

Are you serious?

Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 4:17 a.m.

Well no - actually ten days in jail is pretty normal for these types of probation violations. It's also not unusual for the Judge to ask how defendants on probation got to court. When they say someone else drove them, an officer will frequently watch them leave to see if they were telling the truth.


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 1:54 a.m.

Time to cut bait


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 1:39 a.m.

One name for Mr. Stonum to research: Tony Boles. <a href="" rel='nofollow'></a> <a href="" rel='nofollow'></a>


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 11:34 p.m.

Brady, it has to be the most difficult part of the job--but it has to be done. You have restored too much value to what will once again be the best program in the country under your leadership---don't compromise the integrity of what you have created. Work with him outside the program--but, unfortunately, Stonum has no place on the team. The Virginia Tech coach, Frank Beamer, made the tough decisions with respect to two of his players (kickers, that, could have made for a different Sugar Bowl outcome) to maintain the integrity of his program. You absolutely have to do the same--as difficult as it must be!


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 5:05 p.m.

Beamer's decision were pure class!


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 10:42 p.m.

Respectfully Mr. OSU: If it were Denard Robinson who did this he wouldn't be Denard Robinson. His personality (and lack of selfishness ) are half the reason people like him. I doubt Michigan wants 'notoriety&quot;. We had enough of that with the fab five. Does anyone look back on that with any satisfaction? If you read the comments 90% are for Stonum being off the team despite the fact he's hardly on the &quot;bubble&quot;. He'd likely be the top receiver next year. That is why AA residents and Michigan fans are more than just win at any cost folks. You're right about double standards for athletes who are great or bench warmers. It's wrong.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 10:08 p.m.

Let's land this spacecraft back in the real world. Hoke's decision (2nd chance vs. teaching a tough &quot;life-lesson&quot;) about keeping Stonum will have little or nothing to do with Stonum personally or the gravity of the offense. Hoke will make his decision based on what's best for the UM FB team. Blue administration expects nothing less. They want victories and the notoriety/income it brings. Like most big-time FB programs, these &quot;student-athletes&quot; are really little more than commodities to the university. If this were DR, not Stonum, everyone would argue about the need for a &quot;second chance to straighten the kid out.&quot; If this were a under-performing redshirted freshman, everyone would want him bumped and the scholarship used for a better, more valuable player. Based on Stonum's FB performance, the poor kid's on the bubble. If you don't believe this, you're in outer space. Sad, but true.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 9:14 p.m.

Personally, I could care less what happens in one's personal life. He is going to pay the penalty for that. Kicking him out of school and/or off the team would be a penalty nobody else would have to pay.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 8:46 p.m.

RE: &quot;Stonum has had four alcohol-related encounters with the criminal justice system, which he called &quot;extremely unusual&quot; for someone Stonum's age, putting him among less than one percent of the population.&quot; Looks like his chances for recovery may be less than 1% as well. This is a tragedy. Medical studies show: as much as 10% of the general population have what are called &quot;addictive personalities&quot; (including alcoholics). IQ, academic or athletic abilities have nothing to do with this. Neither does the choice of university or football team one makes. It's not about &quot;guilt&quot; of recruiters or university admissions officials: every school in the country faces the same statistics. Stonum's being on the Michigan team has nothing to do with the reputation or quality of Michigan football. In the face of proven facts, to claim otherwise makes the claimant a fool.


Sun, Jan 8, 2012 : 1:54 a.m.

Stonum's being on the Michigan team has nothing to do with the reputation or quality of Michigan football. In the face of proven facts, to claim otherwise makes the claimant a fool. that makes no sense at all. The kid is 21 and he has 4 alcohol related arrests. My guess is they all came as a member of the Michigan Wolverines. It's not UM's fault he was arrested. It's UM's fault he is still on the team. Got it?


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 8:33 p.m.

Respect Coach Hoke for his patience. Pretty sure he does not want to knock the kid farther down while he is in jail for 10 days. You can bet the kid is done playing football at Michigan. Coach Hoke is a class act and will do the right thing at the right time.

Bertha Venation

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 8:21 p.m.

Aw..... poor baby.....


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 7:26 p.m.

I guess if Stonum stays on the team then Michigan should show the same standards for guys who don't play and will always be a bench warmer. That would prove, it's not all about $. But maybe I'm living on fantasy island.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 6:48 p.m.

I don't believe we should cut this kid....from the team yes...but, keep him in school...don't let this kid just fall through the cracks... If he gets his act together....give him a chance too try out for the team... Blue is wasting a scholarship

Robert Granville

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 6:46 p.m.

This is the last time we'll think of Stonum as a UM athlete. Not because Hoke will kick him to the curb.. but because he will be unable to satisfy his classroom requirements after missing 10 days. I don't believe he will put the effort in. I hope he proves me wrong but I just don't see it.

ive never been offered the &quot;weekend plan&quot;but i dont play football.


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 1:34 a.m.

Ten days doesn't always mean ten days straight. It could mean five two day week ends. Or served during spring break.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 6:15 p.m.

Time to take back that scholarship and give it to a kid that actually appreciates it.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 7:28 p.m.

Ah gratitude and appreciation for the scholarship. That's a thought.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 6:11 p.m.

It would be real easy to cast stones and tell him to go to msu! However, this young man needs help with a problem a lot of people can relate with. I hope this will convince him he is not &quot;entitled&quot; and he straightens out. I don't think Hoke has to prove anything other than do what's best for Stonum.

Silly Sally

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 11:17 p.m.

Knowing that UM will have expensive lawyers to stand by your side and get your free does not help these guys act like responsible young men, it enables them to rea\kailo as little middle school boys protected by mommy and daddy, still. Grow up.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 7:19 p.m.

Hoke has to prove what the real standards are for his program. Young men are young men. Some have a sense of responsibility and concern for the rules of society. Some don't yet have it. For those who don't yet have it- they need to know how far then can go. Hoke is about to tell them and if the standards vary with how good the athlete is.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 6:01 p.m.

Like it or not, this &quot;the-rules-don't-apply-to-me&quot; type of behavior is way too pervasive among the prospective Div 1 athletes coming out of high school in modern society. What I find hilarious and hypocritical, is this myth about &quot;THE MICHIGAN MAN&quot; being different. Somehow Blue alums are under the delusion that if someone accepts a UM scholarship, then they suddenly change their underlying character and automatically start reflecting integrity and enhanced values. The reality is the Blue School is not immune to the factors that effect all schools, all athletic programs and all big-time FB teams.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 5:54 p.m.

I saw him at his court appearences for his second drunk driving offense. On his second appearence he had been arrested the day before for driving on a revoked license. It was not considered in his sentence because they had not yet put him on probation. What strikes me about those appearences is that almost all of the talking is by his lawyer. There is no serious discussion about whether he feels remorse or is committed to a 12 step program. Everything is taken care of for him by the University. I don't think the University is helping him to understand what is facing him when he enters the real world (without football). Sooner or later he will have to deal with the real world. I think it should be sooner.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 9:17 p.m.

Defendants are 1) not generally required to speak, and 2) are often advised not to speak.

Robert Granville

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 6:42 p.m.

That's how court works. Defendants almost never speak unless asked to.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 4:46 p.m.

10 days in the pokey will hopefully humble the young man and rid him of his sense of entitlement. I hear LA-Lafayette is always looking for troubled players to rehab.

Ohhhhhhhh......See ya!!!!!!!!


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 4:38 p.m.

I'll never understand why someone has to be kicked to the curb for something like this. I'm not sure how this helps. The legal system has shown it is clearly ineffective in these matters. If jail and probation are so effective why do people continue to re-offend? The only way people get through these problems is by having a strong support system. Friends and family have to support these people and help them get past the problems. Michigan football always refers to itself as a &quot;family&quot;, so to me the best move is support Stonum. Make sure he doesn't drive, someone take him to his aa meetings, make sure he doesn't drink. Go the extra mile and support your friends and families. That's the true meaning of integrity.


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 1:28 a.m.

First, nobody says jail and probation are effective in changing behavior. Your strong support system sounds like what we do with children. You can't apply that to an adult and you should not have to. Integrity has nothing to do with it. It has to be earned by the individual not injected or force fed.

Silly Sally

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 11:14 p.m.

I sure don't want to be injured or killed by a low-life such as Mr. Stonum, who clearly doesn't care about the safety of the public. He only cares about himself. Jail may wake him up. At least it protects soceity! I'll drink to that, cheers.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 6:02 p.m.

Sorry but I don't buy the enabling argument. I think of it more as encouragement. Positive reinforcement has been shown to be more effective than negative time and time again. Kicking him to the curb isn't going to help. Sometimes helping people requires work and commitment. If you really care about someone then you'll do what it takes. If not then I guess any talk about integrity and commitment to greatness is all bs.

Michigan Man

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 5:57 p.m.

Where are the mother, father and family of Stonum? Have they been involved or is this now a Michigan problem - Stonum is resonsible for his own behavior - I am not responsible for his behavior. Why are not his family and friends all over his case for these ongoing, preventable and silly blown opportunities?


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 5:23 p.m.

The way one gets through this is by taking responsibility for one's actions, Stonum hasn't. What Stonum doesn't need is perpetual enabling by the &quot;famiily&quot;. What the family can do for Stonum is demand that he be held accountable and take responsibility for his actions. Not just held accountable by the judicial system, but held accountable by his &quot;familiy&quot;. At this juncture Darryl Stonum has shown his &quot;family&quot; nothing but contempt, it is time for the &quot;family&quot; to cut him loose.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 4:59 p.m.

Meaning no disresprct but it would be nice if we were all led by the hand or had all of these ehlping hands as you point out. Darryl must accept responseibility for his actions I really do wish him well. I hope he at least graduates. He too must reach out and ask for help and it will come.

Atticus F.

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 4:17 p.m.

Give the kid a break!

Ed daggett

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:56 p.m.

Did he not attend the 12 step program the last two weeks because he was home in Texas? How is a college kid going to pay the court fees with no job? Hoke is going to keep this LC recruit no matter what he does for one simple reason---he needs him to win.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 4:32 p.m.

The kid has not been off the team, they gave him a redshirt, he's been practicing and traveling with the team. He was in New Orleans with them. Hoke needs to put his money where his mouth is and cut ties with the kid. This is like 7 strikes now. 7!!!


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:55 p.m.

Bye-bye, Darryl.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:47 p.m.

Darryl, you can get past this. Complete your legal obligations, focus on your academics, continue in sports, and just move on from this dark time. There are many rooting for your recovery and success!


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 1:23 a.m.

You raise a point I am pondering in re to Mr. Stonum and that is academics. All this makes me wonder how he is doing in that area. Usually if a person is lacking in one area, they lack in others. The decision on him should take into account his total performance. For example if his classroom work is acceptable, and what I mean by that is he is making a strong effort. To me that indicates a positive. But if he is not showing a strong effort to do well in his classes on top of this other stuff that is not good.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:41 p.m.

Hoke is no different than Dantonio. If hemingway was an underclassmen, Stonum never would have been given a redshirt. Fact is, Hoke needs Stonum next year. I guess UM is back to being convict U. Between the drug addicts and acholics it's going to be a long 2012.


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 4:13 a.m.

He isn't blaming you for anything. He's simply pointing out the fact that you are calling into question the character of all players on the team based on the conduct of one player.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 6:09 p.m.

&quot;rightmind&quot;. Oh the irony.....


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 5:45 p.m.

Don't blame the messenger. Hoke and Stonum are dragging Michigan through the mud. I had nothing to do with it. As of right now, you do have convicts on the UM team.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 4:41 p.m.

You sound roughly as mature as Stonum - way to lump an entire team in with the misgivings of a few. True, how Hoke handles this will resonate throughout the B10, but to drag Michigan through the mud is a disingenuous and narrow-minded view.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:37 p.m.

This is a defining moment for U of M football. I lost a lot of respect for Dantonio when he let Ringer go from the jail cell to the playing field. Oh and they got stomped (instant Kharma) Michigan could really use Stonum next year. Will Brady Hoke put integrity before expediency? We'll soon know. One thing that's refreshing. If this site were in Columbus or Penn State, or Miami of Ohio all the comments would be &quot;it's no big deal&quot;, &quot;kids will be kids&quot;, &quot;we all make mistakes&quot; . There is none of that here. Go Blue.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 4:11 p.m.

Stay classy Scott! Nothing better than taking an article that has nothing to do with either OSU or PSU and somehow trying to prove a point of your obvious superior intellect.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:49 p.m.

Scott, The fact is OSU booted a 5-star linebacker for drug abuse and suspended and then revoked the scholarship of a 5-star running back for legal problems. Don't pat yourself on the back. Hoke still has him on the team. You also have another player who has failed numerous drug tests still on the team. Brandon and the Michigan marketing machine has blown so much smoke about integrity, you actually believed it. Now that Hoke is exposed, what's he going to do?

Craig Lounsbury

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:19 p.m.

&quot;.... four alcohol-related encounters with the criminal justice system.... &quot;extremely unusual&quot; for someone Stonum's age.&quot; &quot;The part that's the worst is your deceit about it,&quot; &quot;no record of Stonum attending any 12-step meetings in the past two weeks, which he is required to do.&quot; &quot;yet to pay a dime&quot; for fines and fees he owes for probation.&quot; all this would be very troubling under most circumstances. The one mitigating factor that makes it all OK is.... &quot;second-leading receiver in the 2010 season with 49 catches for 633 yards and four touchdowns.&quot; Laws were made to be broken and 109,000 seats were made to be filled. waiter.....a Gin and tonic please. ...;)


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 9:39 p.m.

Yeah, just check the college bars on the weekend for broken laws---the drinking age is 21 in Michigan, right?


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:07 p.m.

You are not special so quit lieing. Man up. Take responsibility for yourself. Do the right thing. It will go a long way in life.

Michigan Man

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 2:50 p.m.

Commit the crime = do the time. Is Stonum and other U of M students included in calculation that Ann Arbor has the smartest people in the USA? They must be - I cannot believe that this prestigious honor was awarded to Ann Arbor if only the townies (like me) were counted.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 2:46 p.m.

Strike three for Stonum. It is more likely than not that Brady Hoke will not give Stonum another chance. The part of this story; &quot;Stonum told Judge Pope that he could drive because he doesn't have any infractions on his Texas driver's license that would prohbit it&quot;... What part of his probation restrictions did he not understand? A lame excuse, if there was one. I would imagine that Darryl Stonum has been driving all along, and got caught once again. Do not pass go and do not collect $200, a very sad situation, indeed.


Sat, Jan 7, 2012 : 2:10 a.m.

Agree. The more times these &quot;kids&quot; are coddled and slapped on the wrist instead of having to deal with real consequences for their actions, the worse their actions will become as adults.

Silly Sally

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 2:46 p.m.

UM doesn't need to give scholarships to someone so dumb as to drive on a revoked license to a court hearing, and then break the law and get caught. Certainly, there are better people out there. He must be a RichRod recruit. Lloyd would give him the boot, so should Brady.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 10:11 p.m.

He's basically a kid, Sally. Kids do dumb stuff.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 5:43 p.m.

It was also RichRod's fault that Indiana beat UM in basketball last night.

Buster W.

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 5:10 p.m.

Did he have a clean record prior to coming to UM? If he did, you can't really blame Carr. Alsol, I can't believe Brandon will allow him to remain on the team and don't think for one minute he doesn't have a say in it.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:46 p.m.

Rumor has it that Rich Rod was the one who taught Darryl how to drink and advised him to lie to the judge. That RR. Even from 3,000 miles away he still is trying to destroy Michigan football. Diabolical.

Rob Pollard

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:33 p.m.

Wrong. Stonum was recruited and committed when Lloyd was a coach. <a href="" rel='nofollow'></a> Facts are your friend.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 3:31 p.m.

Nice job zinging Rich Rod. But Stonum was actually a Carr recruit.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 2:24 p.m.

Hope this young man can learn from his mistakes and turn his life around. I am sure he will do a lot of thinking the next 10 days. Regardless whether he plays football for Michigan again he has many choices in front of him that will determine the type of life he will have. Respect Coach Hoke for patience.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 2:22 p.m.

That's too bad, but he should probably get the boot from the team AND lose his scholarship. Driving to court on a revoked license is so brazen it is a good bet he's been driving around town since his last DUI as well and endangering us all.

Stephen Landes

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 9:53 p.m.

Robert -- the man has an alcohol abuse problem and is in court for DUI. People who drink drunk don't seem to get the message, but keep doing what they did before -- see the article about him driving to see his probation officer. The likelihood is that he has been a drunk driver while on probation and that should not make anyone feel safe.

Robert Granville

Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 6:38 p.m.

I don't condone his actions but I'd love for you to explain why you feel endangered simply because his license was revoked and he drove anyway. They didn't revoke his driving abilities too. LOL!


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 5:11 p.m.

I agree he probably has been driving around, but doubt the endangering us part of it. Too brazen, driving to meet your parole officer.


Fri, Jan 6, 2012 : 2:21 p.m.

Just a sad turn of affairs; my heart aches for the Michigan football family and for Darryl. But he has some growing up to do, and maybe he will do it this time. I hope he lands on his feet somewhere and makes a good career for himself.

Stonum's blatant diregard for the law is disconcerting. His reckless actions repeatedly show he has little concern about his personal well being and is willing to continuously place it a risk. DS' lack of character makes him HUGE LIABILITY to our program - and this deeply concerns me. Tell me you don't think his flaws make him susceptible to agents or others offering money, gifts, etc. Imagine the repercussions if he does something that results in the NCAA sniffing around campus again. He has become an intolerable risk, plain and simple. Coach Hoke, do the WISE thing.
