Washington State football safety Xavier Hicks has pleaded guilty to two gross misdemeanors after being charged with two felonies in February.

Hicks pleaded guilty to credit-card theft and must pay $1,648 in restitution and fines. He also pleaded guilty to attempted third-degree assault for putting the contact lenses of teammate-roommate Grady Maxwell in rubbing alcohol after a dispute over an unpaid cable TV bill. Maxwell never put the contacts in his eyes.

Hicks was sentenced to 45 days in jail before July 1 but isn't expected to begin serving the term until spring finals are completed. He also must pay $700 and court costs in the attempted-assault case.

Hicks was suspended at the time of his arrest but was back on the team for spring football.

Hicks, from Fullerton, Calif., will be a redshirt junior in the fall.
