College Mum On Letting Star Rejoin B’Ball Team After Pleading Guilty To Felony Gun Charge

  • The University of Memphis has yet to say whether it plans to allow Mikey Williams, a star basketball player, to return to the team after he pleaded guilty Thursday to a felony gun charge in order to avoid prison time.
  • According to several reports, Williams pleaded guilty to one felony count of making a criminal threat stemming from an April shooting outside his California home.
  • As part of the plea deal, Williams will be required to complete 80 hours of community service, cognitive behavioral therapy and gun safety and anger management courses. Upon completion of those stipulations, Williams’ felony will be reduced to misdemeanor.
  • Williams was initially facing up to 30 years in prison for six counts of assault with a firearm, one count of firing into an occupied motor vehicle and two counts of making threats that could result in death or great bodily injury.
