In September, Michigan offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman was kicked off the team for "conduct unacceptable for a Michigan student-athlete." Then, a month later, Tuley-Tillman was formally charged with three felonies, two counts of "capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person" and one count of "using a computer to commit a crime after allegedly filming a sexual encounter with a women without her consent." Essentially, he allegedly recorded a sexual encounter with a women without her consent.
Tuley-Tillman was arraigned in court Monday where he pleaded guilty to one count of each offense, while the third was agreed to be dropped. Stephanie Loh of the Seattle Times explains more of the possible sentences that could result from the ruling.
He will be sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which applies to criminal offenses committed by individuals between ages 17 and 24. Under Michigan law, the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act allows young offenders to keep a criminal act off their record if they successfully serve their sentence and go through a probation period.
Tuley-Tillman is a graduate transfer with two seasons of eligibility remaining. He and hi lawyer have declined to comment to the Detroit Free Press, while Washington State declined to comment to the Seattle Times because the team "cannot comment on recruits until they (officially) sign with the program."
But the fact remains, that WSU probably isn't worried about this. The allegations were already out there when Tuley-Tillman was being recruited, and there is no way Mike Leach and company didn't do their due diligence on this topic. It will be an obstacle in his life, but it doesn't look like it will put an end to his career possibilities.
