Packers LB Erik Walden will have a misdemeanor disorderly conduct conviction against him expunged from the records if he complies with the terms of a deferred judgment agreement reached Friday, the Green Bay Press Gazette reported on its website.

Walden pleaded no contest in Brown County (Wis.) Circuit Court to the misdemeanor. As part of the agreement, in which Judge William Atkinson deferred judgment on the conviction, Walden must stay out of trouble for one year and complete 50 hours of community service. If he does that, the conviction will be erased. If not, the judge could then impose a penalty, the maximum being 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Walden was charged following a Nov. 25 dispute with his 24-year-old girlfriend in their Lawrence, Wis., apartment. She sustained a bump and cut to her forehead and an injured thumb. After originally claiming that Walden pushed her into a bedpost, she recanted and said he was merely defending himself. As a result, prosecutors reduced their felony substantial battery charge to misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

The way we see it

Although Walden played relatively well in 2011, with 60 tackles and three sacks, his off-field trouble may cause the Packers to look for a replacement for him in free agency or the draft.
