Moffitt case settled

Seahawks guard John Moffitt pleaded guilty in Bellevue District Court Friday to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, putting an end to legal issues stemming from three separate incidents at Bellevue Square Mall in 2012.

Moffitt paid a fine of $1,407, according to a district spokeswoman, and received a suspended sentence of 24 months in jail.

Moffitt was originally charged with two misdemeanors — one for criminal trespass and another for obstruction. But those were combined to one charge of disorderly conduct. Moffitt will  not serve the suspended sentence if he avoids any future legal issues.

Moffitt was originally cited for urinating in Bellevue Square and ordered not to enter Bellevue Square for a year. In June he was spotted at a restaurant in the area and cited for obstruction. He was cited again in August when he was again seen at a restaurant in the area.

Moffitt, in his third year from Wisconsin, is competing for a spot at guard on the Seahawks’ starting offensive line.
