Everett receives fine, suspended sentence

Associated Press

NORMAN, Okla. -- Former Oklahoma guard Terrell Everett pleaded no contest and has been given a six-month suspended sentence for a marijuana possession citation he received one day after the Sooners were eliminated from the Big 12 tournament.

Everett also was ordered to pay a $200 administrative fee and $44 in court costs Wednesday, Norman Municipal Court Clerk Judy Simpkins said.

Everett's probation runs through Nov. 3. If he complies with the terms, his plea would be withdrawn and the case would be dismissed, Simpkins said.

Everett, a senior last season, was cited March 11 after security guards called police and reported smelling marijuana coming from an apartment at the University Commons Apartments, according to court records.

Everett handed a police officer a burnt marijuana cigarette and the officer confiscated "a portion of a compressed block of marijuana" he found on top of the television, according to records.

Everett, who had scored 14 points in Oklahoma's 69-63 loss to Nebraska a day earlier, was not taken into custody. He led the Sooners with 21 points and 11 assists in an 82-74 upset loss to Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the first round of the NCAA Tournament later that week.

The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 12.7 points and led the Sooners with an average of 6.9 assists last season.
