Tiger player Hunt gets clean slate from court

University of Memphis basketball player Jeremy Hunt made a brief appearance in Criminal Court this morning and left with a clean slate and congratulations from the judge.
Hunt was charged a year ago with domestic violence assault against his former girlfriend, but was placed on attorney general’s diversion, which meant the case would be wiped from his record if he met certain conditions, including no new arrests.
He met all the requirements, has earned his college degree and has been a major factor in his team’s 25-3 record and No. 6 national ranking.
On Tuesday, his 12-month diversion period expired, prompting Judge James Lammey to congratulate Hunt for turning his life around.
