NDSU Disciplines Players involved in Election Fraud

Posted: Updated:
Bismarck, ND -

Ten NDSU football players charged in a petition fraud case have pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor election offense.

And tonight, NDSU handed out the discipline to the players involved.

9 of the players involved will not be suspended, however the Bison are suspending one player, Sam Ojuri, the starting running back.

Ojuri was suspended because Coach Craig Bohl said there were other factors involving team rules violations.

Ojuri will miss this weekends game against number 3 ranked, Youngstown State.

The 9 other players will be disciplined within the team, but Coach Bohl didn't say what that will be.

The legal discipline looks like this, the players were ordered to complete 50 hours of community service and pay $325 in fees. The offense will be cleared from their record in a year if they stay out of trouble.

John Crockett will start in Ojuri's place, Crockett has 100 more rushing yards than Ojuri.
