Drug case against Sean Sutton dismissed by judge
Friday, August 19, 2011
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- The drug case against former Oklahoma State basketball coach Sean Sutton has been dismissed by a judge and his record has been expunged.
Sutton's attorney, Trace Morgan, confirmed the move Friday. Sutton's original sentence called for three years of probation and the possibility he would be cleared of any charges and a felony conviction if he stayed clean through Aug. 9, 2013.
Sutton is an assistant coach at Oral Roberts, where his brother, Scott, is head coach. He went 39-29 in two seasons at Oklahoma State before resigning under pressure in April 2008. He was arrested last year after authorities said he picked up a shipment of painkillers under another person's name.
He spent 115 days in treatment and pleaded guilty to four drug charges in an agreement that gave him a three-year deferred sentence.
