NEWSLINE: Tuley-Tillman pleads guilty

FORMER MICHIGAN offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman’s felony videotaping case is coming to an end, the Detroit Free Press reports. Tuley-Tillman, who verballed to WSU in January while still leaving his options open with other schools, pleaded guilty to a pair of felonies in exchange for one count being dropped and being sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act.

An HYTA plea for individuals between ages 17 and 24 usually means that the guilty pleas will be removed from the person's record after a probation period, often one year, the newspaper reported.

Tuley-Tillman pleaded guilty to illegally capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person and to committing a crime with a computer.  Tuley-Tillman is scheduled to be sentenced on March 28.

After verbally committing to WSU last month, Tuley-Tillman declined subsequent interview requests and went on other official visits. He  tweeted,  “I respectfully that the media plz stop contacting my family& I. I am going to play football wherever my mom wants to move and live at. Thanks.”

As a transfer, Tuley-Tillman didn’t sign a letter of intent with a school on Signing Day. He has said he’ll graduate in May from Michigan. He would ultimately make his transfer decision official by enrolling in a new school, likely in May/June.  He would have two-to-play-two after graduating early from Michigan and would not be required to sit out a year having obtained his degree.
