University of Kentucky defensive end Jason Hatcher's marijuana possession charge was dismissed in Jefferson District Court after the sophomore from Trinity High School completed a marijuana education course, according to court records.

"He's never had any sort of criminal charge before in his life," said Scott C. Cox, Hatcher's attorney. "His case is scheduled to be expunged on Aug. 18."

Hatcher, along with former Trinity teammate and University of Louisville wide receiver James Quick, was cited on May 26 when U of L campus police responded to a complaint of marijuana odor coming from Quick's apartment, according to the citation.

Police noted 39.5 grams of marijuana, a digital scale and marijuana grinder in Quick's possession. Hatcher was cited for 2.5 grams of marijuana in his pocket when police arrived. He appeared in court on Monday and his case was dismissed. Quick is scheduled to appear in court July 7.
