A former Weber State College basketball player was sentenced Wednesday to 90 days in jail on his guilty pleas to cocaine distribution and theft, 2nd District Court officials said.
Judge David Roth sentenced Curtis Williams Jr., 21, to up to 5 years in prison on each of the two charges. But Roth then suspended the prison term to 90 days in jail, a court clerk said.Williams also was ordered to undergo drug counseling. The one-time Weber State forward played for the Wildcats during the past two seasons.
He was one of nine alleged "crack" dealers arrested by undercover police in Ogden last summer. Crack is a concentrated form of cocaine.
Williams originally was charged with two drug distribution counts and one count of theft. One of the drug charges was dismissed in exchange for his guilty pleas.
