Murchison enters guilty plea

Washington cornerback Jordan Murchison pleaded guilty in King County Court today to a fourth-degree misdemeanor assault charge in connection with an incident last March.
He could be sentenced to up to a year in prison, but a King County spokesman said it will be recommended that he spend 30 days in jail as well as having no contact with the victim and paying for restitution. He will also serve two years’ probation.
Sentencing will be held Oct. 19 in King County Court.
This is the same case for which Murchison missed a court date earlier this year and subsequently had a warrant out for his arrest.
Murchison still has a date in Seattle Municipal Court later this month in connection with a domestic violence case.
It is uncertain how this will impact Murchison’s status with the Huskies. He is currently not with the team, and coach Tyrone Willingham has said only that his case will be reviewed once the legal proceedings are cleared up.
Here is a link to a previous story on Murchison with all of the relevant background material on his cases and his history with UW.
