… Avoids Jail Time

FSU running back Khalan Laborn — the No. 1 RB recruit out of H.S. — just cut a deal in his weed possession case that will keep him out of jail … TMZ Sports has learned.
The former 5-star recruit was arrested at 1:30 AM on Nov. 19 in Leon County, Florida, after he was pulled over for driving on an expired vehicle registration with no headlights on.
When cops spoke with the 19-year-old running back … they say he reeked of weed — and after they searched his FSU backpack — they found a glass jar containing the sticky icky.
Laborn was arrested for possession of marijuana less than 20 grams … which, if convicted — carries a 1-year jail sentence AND a $1,000 fine.
FOR WEED! (Now legal for recreational use in 10 states and D.C. for people over the age of 21).
But, Khalan copped a plea deal with the state attorney in court Thursday … and is now off the hook once he completes a diversion program.
We’re told Laborn has 90 days to pay a $100 fine and complete either 15 hours of community service or 1 day of Leon County work.
Khalan is one of the highest-rated recruits to ever enroll at FSU … and flashed promise until a knee injury knocked him out for the 2018 season.
He’s expected to be a huge part of the Noles’ offense in 2019.
