TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A Hillsborough County judge has ordered a 21-year-old Tampa man to get counseling in a mental health facility after the man pretended to be 14 to play on a youth football team.
On Wednesday, Circuit Judge Daniel L. Perry sentenced Julious Threatts to community control, meaning he will wear an ankle monitor and be under regular supervision as he undergoes treatment.
Threatts was arrested in August after a coach and school workers found he submitted fake paperwork to play in the Tampa Bay Youth Football League and register as a student at Webb Middle School.
He was charged with trespassing on school grounds, obstruction by a disguised person, and violation of probation, which he was serving for earlier burglary charges.
