The clerk, who asked not to be identified, said she could not explain why another District Court clerk mistakenly said Wednesday that a bench warrant would be issued for D.J. Shelton because, she said, he had missed two scheduled court appearances.
On Friday, the clerk said Shelton's first court notice was returned by the Post Office because it had been sent to an address where Shelton no longer lived. Shelton's second court appearance had been rescheduled from Tuesday to Thursday.
The clerk said "hundreds of students" face MIP charges like Shelton, and his $500 fine is "like all students do" when they plead guilty.
Shelton, a 6-foot-10 forward, was cited Aug. 19 in Pullman. Shelton is a redshirt sophomore transfer from Citrus (junior) College in Glendora, Calif.
