Former Cal Poly football player Cortland Fort was sentenced to three years’ formal probation and 1,000 hours of community service Monday morning after pleading no contest for one charge of conspiracy to commit grand theft.
Fort was initially charged with 12 felonies stemming from his role in an attempted robbery of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity house back in August. The other 11 charges were dismissed, and Fort’s plea deal submitted to prosecutors last month was finalized on Monday.
If Fort successfully completes his probationary period and community service requirements, the felony charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor and stricken from his official record, according to attorney Chris Casciola.
Fort moved back to his hometown of Riverside after his arrest in August and proceeded to play cornerback for Riverside City College.
