DETROIT (WJBK) -- Cass Tech quarterback Jayru Campbell was sentenced to jail time, probation, and community service for body slamming a school security guard in January.

Campbell will serve 60 days in jail, with credit for three days already served.  He will also have to do 75 hours of community service and serve 15 months of probation, including random drug testing and psychological exams.

Because Campbell will be attending summer school, he must turn himself in on July 28 to serve jail time.

Campbell was sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which will allow the conviction to fade off his record.

Campbell earlier was granted a plea deal after admitting to slamming the guard to the ground in January.  The confrontation was recorded on video, after Campbell refused to remove his hood off per school policy.

"I apologize to the security guard for my actions.  It was not my intention to hurt you," Campbell read from a written apology in court.  The security guard was not present in court for today's sentencing.
