Randle might be made to speak of alcohol


Prosecutors are recommending that a former Kansas University football player speak out about the effects of alcohol as part of his sentence for two counts of battery.

John Randle recently entered a plea in Douglas County District Court in connection with two batteries: one on March 13 outside It's Brothers Bar & Grill, 1105 Mass., and one on April 16 outside The Granada.

Prosecutors are recommending that he do 120 hours of community service or spend 50 hours speaking to student-athletes about alcohol. They're also recommending a 48-hour jail sentence for each count.

Randle was kicked off the team after a series of arrests.

He will be sentenced July 21.
