Myles Davis' legal troubles have been resolved.

The Xavier senior guard on Thursday pleaded guilty to one reduced charge of disorderly conduct through a plea agreement in Hamilton County Municipal Court. His attorney, Clyde Bennett II, said Davis has paid court fees and restitution to his former girlfriend, Kiley Stoll, and is moving forward.

"All of Myles Davis’ collegiate criminal issues are behind him," Bennett said. "We were very pleased with the outcome of the day’s proceedings. He has received no jail time and no probation."

Over the summer Davis was twice charged with misdemeanor criminal damaging for incidents related to Stoll. The first charge was filed in July when, according to documents, Davis damaged Stoll’s cell phone.

The second charge was filed in August. A complaint said Davis threw and broke a cell phone and dented of the driver’s side door of Stoll’s car.

One of the charges was dismissed Thursday. Davis, who completed an anger management course via the plea agreement, apologized in court to the Stoll family.

"Myles was very happy with the resolution," Bennett said. "He looks forward to rejoining the Xavier basketball team."

That return will be determined by the university. The New Jersey native was indefinitely suspended from the basketball program in September and has not been around the Musketeers, ranked No. 7 in the preseason Associated Press Top 25, since before practice started.

Coach Chris Mack said in October that Davis has an opportunity to return to the program. The 6-foot-2-inch player is listed on Xavier’s current roster on the university web site.

The Musketeers open the regular season at 7 p.m. Friday against Lehigh at Cintas Center.

Davis averaged 10.8 points and 4.1 assists during his junior season and captured the team’s Most Inspirational Player award for his leadership and contributions.
