The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - Sport -

THREE for­mer Michi­gan State Univer­sity foot­ball play­ers ac­cused in the sex­ual as­sault of a woman have avoided jail time af­ter plead­ing guilty.

Josh King, Don­nie Cor­ley Jr. and De­met­ric Vance were sen­tenced Wed­nes­day to three years’ pro­ba­tion, as well as sex of­fender treatment and ther­apy. They pleaded guilty in April to se­duc­ing an un­mar­ried woman, a re­duced charge.

They could have been im­pris­oned for up to five years. Pros­e­cu­tors rec­om­mended no jail time.

A woman says she was as­saulted in an apart­ment bath­room last year. King, Cor­ley and Vance were kicked off the foot­ball team when charges were filed and later dis­missed from the school.

The woman’s at­tor­ney, Karen Trus­zowski, tells WILX-TV it was best for her client to agree to the plea agree­ment to avoid a trial. – AP
