Adrian Peterson Reaches Plea Deal, Will Not See Jail Time

Adrian Peterson to avoid jail time

Running back Adrian Peterson has reached a plea deal in his child-abuse case and is not expected to serve any jail time, a source confirmed to ESPN's Michele Steele. Peterson will enter a plea Tuesday afternoon to a lesser charge than the felony child-abuse charge that he is currently facing, the source confirmed.

The Minnesota Vikings star, who has been on the commissioner's exempt list since being indicted in September, will enter a plea to one misdemeanor count of reckless assault, according to the source. Peterson's plea deal was reporter earlier Tuesday by ProFootballTalk.com, which also reported that the plea will not include any references to family violence or violence against a minor.

If Judge Kelly Case accepts the plea, Peterson will be placed on probation, pay a $2,000 fine and perform 80 hours of community service, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
