Klein pleaded not guilty to the charges but was ordered to stay away from the complainant (a former girlfriend), not consume drugs or alcohol and to not carry or be in possession of a a fire-arm. Klein stay in jail overnight and his lawyers feel good about the possibility of his return to Ohio State when/if the charges are changed. Klein’s defense is that the victim showed up at his apartment uninvited and was forcibly removed from the apartment when she began to cause havoc.
Klein was set to be the backup at middle linebacker in the fall behind sophomore Curtis Grant. The loss of Klein will thin the depth at line backer greater from an already thin set of players.
