Former heralded Florida State football prospect De’Andre Johnson has been sentenced to jail for punching a woman in a Tallahassee bar.

Johnson, who has since left the Seminoles program, will serve 10 days in a jail work camp, pay a $1,000 fine and serve six months probation after pleading guilty to midsummer battery, according to a report from TMZ sports.

The incident took place on June 24, 2015, and soon video was released to the public of the brutal punch Johnson threw. (RELATED: SUSPENDED: FSU Quarterback Doesn’t Use His Head, Punches Chick Right In The Face)


In the video, Johnson can clearly be seen punching the woman after she appears to strike him or push him away. Johnson has alleged that he struck the woman because she used a racial slur. (RELATED: Former FSU Quarterback Says He Punched Woman Because She Called Him A ‘N****r’ [VIDEO])
