HAMILTON, OH (FOX 19) - A Former Miami University football player will spend the next 15 months in prison after admitting to a probation violation.

Zachary Marshall was convicted July 6 of OVI in Butler County and he was already on probation for a 2008 burglary conviction.

Judge Michael Sage considered evidence Marshall broke his probation in court Wednesday. Marshal also is charged with a fifth-degree felony in Warren County for allegedly altering a prescription for Tylenol III at a Mason pharmacy in May.

In May 2008, the Mason High School graduate, who anticipated playing as an offensive lineman for the Red Hawks, entered two women's rooms at a Miami dormitory.

On the second entry into the woman's dorm room, Marshall fell on top of her and placed a pillow over her face before leaving the room after the two struggled.

Marshall said he had been binge drinking at an Oxford bar and at a friend's house and had wandered into the wrong room by mistake. Marshall was sentenced to 120 days under house arrest, 200 hours of community service, drug and alcohol treatment, and was placed on one year of supervised probation and four years general probation.

Marshall's case in Warren County had been set for a two-day trial scheduled to begin September 20th.
