LOGAN A former Utah State University quarterback who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a woman in his dormitory room was ordered Monday to undergo a 90-day evaluation at the Utah State Prison.
Sentencing for Jerod Walker, 21, who now lives in the Houston area, was scheduled for 9 a.m. April 28 in 1st District Court. Walker was initially charged with aggravated sexual assault, a first-degree felony, in the April 9, 2006, incident, but pleaded guilty in August to sexual assault as a third-degree felony and to sexual battery, a class A misdemeanor.
About 10 days after the sexual assault, Walker was arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana while he was out on bail. The drug charge was dropped as part of a plea agreement.
Walker started at quarterback the last two games of the 2005 season, but coach Brent Guy kicked him off the team after the second arrest. He faces up to five years in prison for the sexual assault and up to one year in jail for sexual battery.
