MESA, Ariz. (AP) - An Arizona State University professor who accused campus police of excessive force when they arrested her has been sentenced to nine months of supervised probation.

A Maricopa County Superior Court commissioner in Mesa sentenced Ersula Ore on Friday.

Ore on July 9 pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest under a plea deal.

Under the plea deal, a felony count of aggravated assault and two other charges were dismissed.

University police say Ore was stopped May 20 for walking in the middle of a street near campus and refused to show identification. They say she kicked an officer in the shin after being handcuffed.
