Shirley case concludes

The legal issues for UW defensive end Josh Shirley relating to an incident at UCLA in the summer of 2010 were recently resolved.

Shirley, who originally signed with UCLA, was arrested in late June, 2010 along with then-Bruin teammates Paul Richardson and Shaquille Richardson on suspicion of theft for allegedly stealing a purse on campus.

The case was quietly resolved recently in the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office when all three defendants pled “to a violation of Penal Code 484(a) and were placed on 24 months summary probation on the following conditions: Complete 80 hours of community service, stay away from UCLA and obey all laws.”

All three were dismissed from UCLA shortly after their arrest and have gone on to productive careers elsewhere in the Pac-12.

Shirley started six games for UW this year and leads the Huskies in tackles-for-a-loss (9) and sacks (5.5) heading into the Alamo Bowl.

Paul Richardson is a sophomore receiver at Colorado and had 39 catches for the Buffs this season despite missing four games due to injury (including CU’s loss at UW).

Shaquille Richardson is a sophomore cornerback at Arizona and started 10 games for the Wildcats, leading the team in interceptions with four (though he also missed the game against UW after being suspended for his role in a brawl against UCLA).
