Ex-MSU player Wilson gets 21 days in jail in fight

EAST LANSING, MI – Former Michigan State defensive tackle Oren Wilson has been sentenced to 21 days in jail on misdemeanor assault and battery charges in connection with a Nov.
22 on-campus fight with fraternity members.

The 22-year-old also was ordered Wednesday to perform community service as part of his sentence. He's the last of 11 current or former Michigan State football players who pleaded guilty in the case to be sentenced.

Wilson was sentenced in East Lansing District Court.

Defense lawyer Andrew Abood said he didn't think jail time was appropriate in the case and the punishment was more stringent than what other Michigan State students have faced in similar cases involving assault.

Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio has said Wilson is transferring.
