Washington receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow was sentenced to five days on a work crew, fined $693, and ordered to pay restitution to the victims and to attend anger-management counseling after pleading guilty Wednesday to two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of third-degree malicious mischief. All are misdemeanors.
Huskies football coach Chris Petersen on Feb. 5 indefinitely suspended Stringfellow and quarterback Cyler Miles, who was not charged because of insufficient evidence. Stringfellow, a sophomore who had no criminal record, said in court that he has learned from his mistake.
The charges are related to two incidents on Feb. 2 in which Stringfellow allegedly assaulted a female shooting pictures and later a Seahawks fan during celebrations on the UW campus after the Super Bowl.
What should Petersen and the Husky football program do now? That’s the subject of today’s poll. Vote and weigh in on comments.
