Former Illinois basketball player Jereme Richmond is going back to jail after violating the terms of his probation

Former Illinois Fighting Illini basketball player Jereme Richmond was sent back to jail on Thursday after violating the conditions of his probation. Richmond plead guilty in January to unlawful use of a weapon and was sentenced to 18 months probation. He tested positive for marijuana on Oct. 19, failed to comply with his curfew, and did not attend orientation for domestic violence treatment.

Richmond was arrested in August of 2011 in Waukegan, Ill. and accused of punching his ex-girlfriend and threatening her family with a gun.

His lawyer requested that Richmond be put on 24-hour curfew and attend treatment rather than serve jail time. The judge ordered Richmond held in jail over the weekend, the case will be brought back up on Monday, Oct. 29.

Richmond was named Illinois Mr. Basketball in 2010 and was a McDonald's All-American. He went to Illinois for one year, where he averaged 7.6 points and 5.0 rebounds in 22.1 minutes per game. After his freshman year he declared for the NBA Draft, but went undrafted.
