Former LSU Tigers quarterback Jordan Jefferson was sentenced to one year of probation after pleading no contest on Wednesday to a simple battery charge stemming from a fight outside a Baton Rouge nightclub in Aug. 2011. Jefferson was charged with simple battery by a grand jury on Sept. 29, 2011, in relation to the fight at Shady's Bar on Aug. 19, 2011.
