Seattle Seahawks guard John Moffitt will manage to avoid jail time, provided he can stay out of trouble, after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct on Friday and received a suspended sentence of 24 months in jail, according to Danny O'Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle.

The 319-pound offensive lineman was reportedly seen by a security guard urinating on the skybridge between the Bellevue Square and Lincoln Square malls in January 2012. Moffitt was given a one-year ban from the mall, but returned five months later to urinate next to a parked car and run away from mall security.

In August 2012, Moffitt was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of criminal trespass when he was seen at a restaurant in Lincoln Square, although he managed to avoid publicly urinating before the arrest.

On Twitter, Moffitt has managed to keep a sense of humor about the event, even retweeting this captioned picture of him and quarterback Russell Wilson:

A third-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Moffitt has started 15 games in two seasons for the Seahawks, struggling with injuries in each of his first two NFL seasons.
