University of Idaho football player Christian Elliss received the same punishment as teammate Dalton Cash after both were accused of attempting to steal food from Moscow’s Walmart in March.

Latah County Magistrate Judge Megan Marshall sentenced Elliss on Wednesday to six months unsupervised probation after he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor willful concealment.

The two players originally pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor petit theft but the charge was amended to willful concealment.

As part of his probation, Elliss, a junior linebacker, is required to perform 20 hours of community service. He was also ordered to pay $394.50 in fees. Cash, a sophomore tight end, also faces the same community service hours and fees.

Both players will be suspended from the Vandals’ Aug. 31 season opener at Penn State.
