COLUMBIANA, Ala. (AP) - Former Auburn University football star Lionel James has pleaded guilty to two of three DUI charges against him since July.
The Alabama Sports Hall of Fame member was given a 12-month sentence which would be reduced to 60 days with completion of his treatment. The Auburn standout of the early 1980s also played professional football for the San Diego Chargers.
His attorney, Tommy Spina, said, "What we're trying to accomplish here is larger in scope than dealing with DUI cases in Shelby County. We're trying to save a man's life."
