Ex-Oklahoma State RB pleads guilty to forgery charges

The last anyone had heard of former Oklahoma State running back Herschel Sims was that he had pleaded not guilty to a pair of forgery charges and transferred down a level to Lamar University. Since then, Sims has become the leading rusher for LU. Now, he’s reversed course on his legal issue.

Per the Oklahoman, Sims pleaded guilty to two felony counts of second-degree forgery Friday. In addition to his deferred sentences, Sims received a $300 fine, $700 restitution, 100 hours of community service and other fees.

The charges stemmed from an incident in late May when Cowboys freshman linebacker Jeremiah Tshimanga alleged that somebody had withdrawn a total of $700 from his bank account without his permission.  That “somebody” turned out to be Sims, who was charged with two felonies related to the theft.

Sims was dismissed shortly afterward by coach Mike Gundy.

Lamar is actually scheduled to play at OSU in 2013.

    With a name like that he had a chance to be epic. I hope he gets his life turned around.
