In 2015, Howard, along with his teammate/accomplice Tanner Ward, was arrested for sodomizing his disabled black teammate with a coat hanger.  This was the culmination of allegations of months of teasing and taunting, some of what has not been proved yet,which included forcing the disabled teammate to memorize the lyrics to a racist song. 
According to his testimony, the disabled teammate said: "I screamed. I was pretty upset. I felt really bad. A little bit betrayed and confused at the same time. It was terrible — a pain I’ve never felt."
Howard is supposed to graduate from high school on May 27th. 
Despite facing life in prison, John Howard was sentenced to zero jail or prison time instead he’s getting two years of probation and 300 hours of community service. With good behavior, the judge said his record could be expunged. He’ll also be allowed to do his community service in his new home in Texas where his family peacefully relocated. 
John Howard had submitted an Alford plea, which allowed him to maintain his innocence while acknowledging that prosecutors would have most likely won a conviction if the case had gone to trial. A judge will only order prison time if Howard violates his probation. The maximum punishment that could be meted out in such a case would be 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000. 
District Judge Randy Stoker agreed to bind himself to the plea bargain, which includes a withheld judgement, meaning at sentencing, Stoker will order Howard be placed on probation but will not order an underlying prison sentence. A judge will order a prison term only if Howard violates his probation.
