3 Ex-Huskies Get Jail Terms In Eugene


EUGENE, Ore. - Three former University of Washington athletes convicted of sexually abusing two women in a dormitory last October have been given jail terms.

The three apologized at their sentencing but did not admit to improperly touching the women.

Jason Paul Shelley, 20; Prentiss Perkins, 22, and Charles Douglas Barnes, 21, each drew 120-day jail terms Thursday, with 100 days suspended. Shelley and Barnes played football, Perkins played basketball at the UW.

The three also were assessed two-year probated terms on each of two counts of third-degree sex abuse, a misdemeanor.

Barnes, now at Jackson State College in Mississippi, originally spent four days in jail. He will serve the rest of his sentence in the Lane County Jail next June.

Perkins, now at Concordia College in Minnesota, was jailed for 14 days. He will serve the remainder of his sentence in July.

Because Shelley already spent a total of 20 days in jail, he will not have to serve any more time.
