Former Colorado Lineman Sentenced For Assault

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Former University of Colorado lineman Alex Lewis has been sentenced to 45 days in jail and two years of probation for his role in a fight that left an Air Force Academy cadet unconscious.

The 21-year-old, who was sentenced Friday, pleaded guilty in December to third-degree assault. Boulder police arrested Lewis and CU quarterback Jordan Webb on May 11 after witnesses said the men were involved in a fight with 22-year-old cadet Lee Bussey.

Webb also pleaded guilty to third-degree assault and was sentenced to two years of probation and 20 days on a work crew.

Boulder District Judge Patrick Butler says Lewis can finish his semester at the University of Nebraska — where he transferred last year — before serving the jail sentence.
