Merced Sun-Star - - 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.

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.

Ok­la­homa State coach Mike Boyn­ton said Weath­ers has shown “sin­cere re­morse.”
