Suspended UW WR Stringfellow takes plea deal
By Brent Stecker
A King County District Court judge accepted Washington football player Damore’ea Stringfellow’s plea deal Wednesday to three misdemeanor charges stemming from two Feb. 2 assaults.
Stringfellow, a freshman from Perris, Calif., pleaded guilty to two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of malicious mischief, and was sentenced to five days in jail, which were transferred to five days on a work crew. He was also sentenced to counseling, and 70 hours of community service or fined $693.
Stringfellow was indefinitely suspended by the Huskies along with quarterback Cyler Miles after the incidents, which occurred near the University of Washington campus on the night of the Seahawks’ Super Bowl win over the Denver Broncos.
Miles, who is from Colorado, was not charged in the assault case.
Both players have been absent from the Huskies’ spring practice session, which will end Saturday. Washington coach Chris Petersen said Wednesday on 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Brock and Danny” that a decision on their futures with Washington will come in the fall.
