Michigan receiver Darryl Stonum is released from jail
Michigan wide receiver Darryl Stonum was released early this morning from the Washtenaw County Jail, where he was serving time for violating probation on a conviction for operating while visibly impaired second-offense.
Stonum, 21, was released at 12:30 a.m., jail officials said, after being sentenced Jan. 6 to 10 days in jail for violating probation by driving on a revoked license and lying to a probation officer.
Jail officials said inmates can earn time off their sentences for good behavior. Stonum is scheduled to return to 15th District Court in Ann Arbor on Jan. 20 for a hearing as he continues a strict sobriety court program.
Michigan coach Brady Hoke has said that there has been no change in Stonum's status with the team and he's not concerned about Stonum's decision-making.
Stonum, who is from Stafford, Texas, redshirted this season to deal with his legal issues. He has one more year of eligibility.
Stonum was Michigan's second-leading receiver in the 2010 season with 49 catches for 633 yards and four touchdowns.
