USC's Lewis reaches plea deal on domestic battery charges

USC wide receiver Joseph Lewis pleaded no contest Wednesday to two counts of domestic battery stemming from his February arrest, according to The Los Angeles Times' J. Brady McCollough.

It looked as though Lewis was headed to trial, but he accepted a plea deal which he had initially rejected last week. As part of the deal, Lewis was sentenced to 36 months probation, 60 days in county jail, a 10-year ban on owning or using firearms, enrollment in a domestic violence treatment program, and was handed a restraining order from the victim.

The receiver was removed from the Trojans' roster before spring practices and remains suspended indefinitely. USC spokesman Tim Tessalone told McCollough last week that he hopes to return to the team, with their fall camp beginning Aug. 3.

Lewis was a highly touted recruit that was ranked as the No. 1 receiver in the 2017 class. Despite this, he saw limited action in his first season on campus, catching only four passes.
