Two Notre Dame football players have made guilty pleas in their Fulton County cases.

Dexter Williams and Ashton White appeared in court on Tuesday morning and pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana charges, according to ABC 57.

The case stems from their arrests back on August 19th, right before the football season. That’s when they and three other athletes were stopped by Indiana State Police for speeding and having a broken taillight.

According to court documents, the trooper smelled marijuana while talking to the driver. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of pot and a handgun.

White and Williams were released after the hearing on a conditional discharge. Their next court hearing is set for Nov. 22. The two could be sentenced for up to 180 days in jail and/or receive a one-thousand dollar fine.
