OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens kick returner David Reed has resolved a marijuana charge against him without paying a fine or receiving jail time.
The case is now closed, according to Maryland district court records. Reed addressed the case Friday rather than going to trial next week.
Reed was issued a summons for misdemeanor possession of marijuana last month after police entered his residence in December and found a small amount of the drug.
Reed’s attorney entered a plea other than guilty or not guilty and received a “stet” on the docket of Baltimore County District Court. That means Reed was granted a conditional stay on all further proceedings on the charge.
According to a court clerk, this legal ruling operates in a similar manner to being placed on unsupervised probation.
As long as Reed remains out of trouble for the next three years, the case will remain closed.
