Former Oklahoma State running back Herschel Sims received 18-month deferred sentences Friday in Payne County District Court after pleading guilty to two felony counts of second-degree forgery.
Sims must perform 100 hours of community service, go through a life-skills course and pay $700 restitution and $300 in fees, plus other court costs, according to his plea agreement. In total, Sims must pay $1,329.
A sophomore who transferred to Lamar after being dismissed from the team in June, Sims admitted to twice forging a bank withdrawl slip with the account number of OSU linebacker Jeremiah Tshimanga on April 27, first to withdraw $500 and then $200 several hours later.
The only five-star recruit to play for the Cowboys immediately after high school, Sims was the team's No. 3 running back. He is Lamar's leading rusher, with 388 yards and two touchdowns. The Cardinals are 3-5 this season.
