Jayru Campbell readmitted to Cass Tech

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) - A spokesperson for Detroit Public Schools announced Wednesday afternoon Jayru Campbell has been readmitted to Cass Tech.

Currently, a judge is considering whether to approve a plea deal in his case after he was accused of body-slamming a school guard to the ground. If accepted, Campbell would be sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which allows young defendants to have a conviction erased if they complete sentence terms.

He is charged with assault. Prosecutors say the 17-year-old junior slammed the guard to the ground in January after refusing to follow school policy and pull a hood off his head. The confrontation was recorded on video.

DPS also released this statement regarding Campbell's readmittance: "We are unable to discuss the decision because Mr. Campbell's educational records are protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. Unless his parents authorize the District to release those records, we cannot comment further."

Campbell has said he will play for Michigan State University in 2015. He led Cass Tech to state championships in 2011 and 2012.
