A former Notre Dame football coach will remain on probation and receive counseling and medication after he failed to complete court-ordered counseling.
Corwin Brown was given an extended probation service during a hearing on Tuesday, March 16, the South Bend Tribune reported. Prosecutors had requested that he be sent to jail after violating his probation by not receiving counseling.
The case stems back to 2011, when Brown held his wife against her will inside their Granger home during a standoff with police that lasted several hours. Brown’s wife and children left the home and the standoff ended after Brown shot himself in the stomach.
He pleaded guilty but mentally ill to felony counts of battering and holding his wife against her will in 2012 and was sentenced to probation.
