Finally, closure for Hatworld

Resident troublemaker Dominique Douglas is back in the news, as he has just agreed to a plea deal in the Douglas/Bowman Affair. Details are as follows (all emphasis mine):

Suspended Iowa football player Dominique Douglas on Tuesday pleaded guilty to credit card fraud and was ordered to play $223.53 in restitution to the victim of a May 8 incident in which Douglas used a stolen credit card to make online purchases from Hat World.


Barry and Levon approve of $223... worth of hats. Awwww yeah.

Douglas, a sophomore receiver from Detroit who has been serving an indefinite suspension since being arrested Aug. 19, entered a written plea of guilty in Johnson County Court, an agreement that reduced the charge against him from a Class D felony to an aggravated misdemeanor.

This is, of course, much more in line with the nature of the offense than the original $750-$7500 in fees and five years in prison.

Douglas, 19, who was scheduled to go to trial Monday, was granted a deferred judgment, which means if he abides by certain unspecified conditions for an undisclosed period of time, the guilty plea will be withdrawn and he will avoid sentencing. If he fails to meet expectations, he faces up to two years in prison and between $625 and $6,250 in fines.

I know what you're thinking: The guy already fucked up again, he's in trouble for swiping the Air Bud trilogy! Aha. He already pled guilty and was fined 100 dollars. (He probably paid by credit card. --Buddy Light*). The deferred judgment will start once his plea deal is accepted. BA-ZANG! Dougie Fresh is BACK, bitches! All he has to do is stay out of trouble for 24 months here in Iowa City, and...

...and...

...well, shit, like that'll happen.

*Har har.
