OKLAHOMA CITY -- Former Oklahoma State football player Chris Collins has been sentenced today to ten years probation for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl in Texas.
A jury in New Boston, Texas, recommended five years probation
for Collins after he pleaded guilty November 7th to an aggravated
sexual assault charge.
Collins -- who's from Texarkana, Texas -- was one of four men
charged following an after-prom party in May 2004, when he was 17.
In addition to probation Collins must register as a sex
offender, perform 750 hours of community service, pay for one year
of counseling for the victim and pay the court $325 for the
psychologist who interviewed him.
Collins was a starting linebacker for OSU but was dismissed from
the team five days after his guilty plea.
