Jerime Anderson Suspended For Two Games

Sept. 19, 2011

LOS ANGELES - Jerime Anderson, a senior guard on UCLA's men's basketball team, has been suspended for the first two games on the Bruins' schedule -- the exhibition game against Cal State San Bernardino (Nov. 6) and the regular-season opener versus Loyola Marymount (Nov. 11), head coach Ben Howland announced today.

"Now that the legal proceedings in conjunction with Jerime's arrest have been finalized, I am re-instating him to the team with a two-game suspension," said Howland. "Jerime has been very remorseful in acknowledging his mistake and accepting responsibility for his actions. I believe he has learned a valuable lesson."

Last Thursday (Sept. 15), Anderson pled guilty to two misdemeanor charges, appropriation of lost property and trespass. The plea agreement, according to Anderson's lawyer Jon Artz, was based on evidence demonstrating Anderson's good conduct and moral character from members of the community and Anderson's prompt acceptance and responsibility of his mistake, as well as his embarrassment and remorse.

Anderson must complete 300 hours of community service in a two-year period. On Sept. 15, 2013, assuming completion of the community service requirement and, if he has had no other legal issues, the plea of appropriation of lost property will be withdrawn and that charge dismissed, leaving only a misdemeanor charge of trespass.

Currently, because of the manner of the disposition of the case, Anderson has suffered no convictions for any criminal offense.

Anderson was arrested on campus on the evening of July 26.
