East Mississippi Community College quarterbacks coach Bo Wallace pleaded guilty and was non-adjudicated on a DUI charge in West Point Municipal Court on Wednesday.
Wallace was given probation, but the judge didn't set a date for the probation to expire, according to the clerk in the West Point Municipal Court. Wallace also is required to complete a Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) class and the MASEP program, Mississippi's series of courses for DUI offenders.
Non-adjudication is an agreement in which the defendant pleads guilty but a final judgment is withheld. It is common for charges in non-adjudications, particularly those that are first-time offenders, to be dismissed in roughly six months.
Wallace was arrested at 11:06 p.m. June 17. At the time, EMCC football coach Buddy Stephens told The Clarion-Ledger Wallace took prescription medication, fell asleep at the wheel, and got into a wreck. Wallace was arrested after the wreck. His mug shot featured him shirtless and with red marks on his face and body.
Wallace played quarterback at EMCC before transferring to Ole Miss, where he started for three seasons. Wallace is in his first season as quarterbacks coach in Scooba.
