Former Detroit prep football star pleads guilty to misdemeanor charge of domestic violence


DETROIT — A former Detroit prep football star has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence in connection with an assault on his girlfriend.

Seventeen-year-old Jayru Campbell pleaded Friday to the charge that stemmed from accusations he assaulted the 17-year-old girl Sept. 12 in a stairwell at Cass Technical High School. That's the same day he left jail after serving a sentence for body-slamming a security officer in his school.

Prosecutors say he's scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 12.

Campbell on Tuesday was sentenced to more jail time for violating probation after his conviction for assaulting the guard. He received seven months in jail with credit for 98 days already served.

In court Tuesday, he asked the judge not to give up on him.
