LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) A former University of Wyoming football player, who recently signed an NFL contract, had been accused of inappropriately touching two women while in college and was sentenced Thursday to six months in jail after pleading no contest to reduced charges.
Carl Granderson, 22, entered the plea to charges of sexual battery and unlawful contact, both misdemeanors, after reaching a plea agreement with prosecutors. However, Judge Tori Kricken rejected the punishment of one year of unsupervised probation laid out in the deal after listening to emotional testimony from two students who say they were molested by Granderson as they slept at his apartment the night after Wyoming's final game last year, the Laramie Boomerang reported .
Kricken said Granderson's actions demonstrated "very little sense of responsibility."
