Charges dropped against Venoy Overton if he performs 24 hours of community service

Washington senior Venoy Overton appeared in Seattle Municipal Court this morning to answer gross misdemeanor charges furnishing alcohol to a minor.
His attorney Mike Hunsinger and Supervising City Attorney Mark Mayo agreed to a deal that would avoid a trial and keep the former Husky star out of jail.
Seattle Municipal Court Judge Fred Bonner granted Overton a dispositional continuance, which would drop the charges if he avoids criminal violations for a year and performs 24 hours of community service in the next 60 days.
Wearing jeans and a shirt , the Husky guard arrived at court room 1002 unaccompanied before Hunsinger arrived. The proceedings didn’t take long and described a anti-climatic by a courtroom observer.
The original court date was scheduled for the April 1 and moved to Thursday.
Overton could have faced up to one year in jail.
