Last Chance U Star Isaiah Wright Has Murder Charge Dropped, Released From Jail

Netflix

Last Chance U star Isaiah Wright has been behind bars since an arrest last year. However, this week, Wright was finally released from jail after his murder charge was dropped thanks to a plea deal. Wright pleaded guilty to one count of facilitation of aggravated robbery while in court Wednesday, according to TMZ Sports. As a result, Wright was sentenced to time served and five years of probation.

Wright’s plea deal means Wright “furnished assistance without the intent to commit robbery,” according to his attorney Kevin Angel.

Wright was initially arrested and charged in connection with the stabbing death of 18-year-old Caleb Radford, who was stabbed multiple times. Wright’s brother, former Indiana wide receiver Camion Patrick, Keshawn Lonnell Hopewell, and Itiq Green were also charged in the case.

There is no word on what is next for Wright or whether he will attempt to revive his football career.

Wright was a featured character on the first two seasons of the Netflix series which focused on East MIssissippi Community College, where Patrick also played before the show began filming.

Patrick eventually went on to play at Indiana, where he was on scholarship finishing out his final year. Wright, meanwhile, had committed to play for West Georgia before leaving the team prior to the season.

The series has since moved on to Kansas to follow the Independence Community College Pirates. On season 3 of the series, coaches from Independence referenced Wright’s legal issues when discussing attitude issues for one of their current players and the struggles he has to stay clean off the field.
