Two former Kansas University basketball players were granted probation Friday in Douglas County District Court after pleading guilty and no contest to charges in unrelated cases.
Keith O. Harris, Kansas City, Mo., a member of the 1988 men's championship team, was sentenced to three years probation. Harris originally was sentenced Aug. 31 to three to 10 years in prison on a conviction of selling marijuana.
His sentence was modified on a defense attorney's request.
Harris on July 14 pleaded guilty to a felony count of selling marijuana in connection with an incident in which he allegedly sold a small amount of the drug in May to an undercover informant working for local drug enforcement authorities.
A felony charge of sale of cocaine was dropped as part of a plea agreement, Douglas County Assistant Dist. Atty. Rick Trapp said.
Terry Brown, a member of the 1991 Final Four team, was sentenced to two years probation after pleading no contest to two counts of misdemeanor theft. He was arrested Aug. 13 on a warrant in connection with the reported crimes at a residence in the 3100 block of W. 22nd. Prosecutors allege he illegally entered the residence on Dec. 30 or 31 and took a television and leather coat.
Brown also was ordered to pay $295 in restitution and to serve 50 hours of community service.
