Ok­la­homa State’s Weath­ers re­turn­ing af­ter sus­pen­sion

The Bradenton Herald - - Sports -

Ok­la­homa State guard Michael Weath­ers, who was charged with grand lar­ceny in Septem­ber and sus­pended from the team, was al­lowed to re­turn to prac­tice.

Ok­la­homa State coach Mike Boyn­ton made the an­nounce­ment in a state­ment on so­cial me­dia.

Ac­cord­ing to Payne County court records, Weath­ers pleaded guilty to a mis­de­meanor charge of know­ingly con­ceal­ing stolen prop­erty and re­ceived a two-year de­ferred sen­tence. He made a pub­lic apol­ogy on so­cial me­dia on Thurs­day for what he called a “ter­ri­ble de­ci­sion” to steal a purse.

Boyn­ton said Weath­ers has shown “sin­cere re­morse.” He said Weath­ers will “be­gin the process of re­gain­ing the trust of his team­mates and coaches as it re­lates to re­turn­ing to games.”
