GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Former Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins has pleaded no contest to a marijuana possession charge.

Jenkins, who was kicked off the team following his third arrest in 23 months, was ordered to pay court costs and fines totaling $421 on Tuesday. But he was not placed on probation or ordered to perform community service.

Jenkins was considered one of the best cornerbacks in the Southeastern Conference. But his off-the-field issues probably cost
him millions in the NFL.

Jenkins was arrested April 23 and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession after police spotted him sitting in a parked
car, smoking what an officer later found to be a marijuana cigarette. Jenkins was arrested on the same charge in January and later accepted a plea deal.
