(Washington, Pa.) -- Two former football players for a state university in western Pennsylvania have been sentenced to probation in an off-campus beating in 2014.

Twenty-year-old D'Andre Dunkley and 22-year-old Shelby Wilkerson each pleaded guilty earlier this month to a misdemeanor simple assault charge and were sentenced to 18 months' probation. Other charges, including aggravated assault and conspiracy, were dropped.

They were among six California University of Pennsylvania players charged following an October 2014 beating outside a restaurant that left 30-year-old Lewis Campbell in intensive care with severe brain trauma.

Twenty-four-year-old Corey Ford, a Bishop McDevitt graduate, pleaded no contest to aggravated assault last month.

Charges against 22-year-old James Williamson were dismissed.

Cases against 22-year-old Jonathan Barlow and 21-year-old Rodney Gillin are pending.
