SEATTLE - Seahawks starting linebacker Leroy Hill has received 12 months of probation in Georgia after pleading guilty to a charge of marijuana possession stemming from a January 2009 traffic stop in suburban Atlanta.

Janissa Miller, a deputy clerk with the Georgia state court in Douglas County, confirmed Thursday that Hill had a morning hearing in which he agreed to complete a drug and alcohol abuse counseling program and 30 hours of community service. Hill must also pay fines of $500. He is subject to random drug testing.

If he completes all the requirements in 12 months, he can petition the court to have the conviction erased from his record.

Hill could be subject to testing and possible discipline in the NFL's confidential substance abuse program.
