LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska reserve defensive back Boaz Joseph has been fined $300 for marijuana possession.

Joseph had a charge for possession of drug paraphernalia dropped during his sentencing Tuesday in Lancaster County Court.

University police last month found marijuana in a tobacco tin in Joseph's room at his Lincoln apartment. Officers were there to execute a search warrant in connection with an unrelated fraud investigation. Two other people were ticketed for having drugs and paraphernalia.

Coach Mike Riley has not commented on the case.

Joseph had been ticketed last June for bike theft in Lincoln. That case was dismissed in December after he completed a pre-trial diversion program.
