Students are stunned about another OSU player being under fire due to poor choices. Now, OSU defensive tackle Adolphus Washington’s misconduct off the field is the big talk on campus. Students tell ABC 6/ FOX 28 news that they are surprised the OSU senior entertained the idea of a prostitute.
Number 92 is charged by Columbus police with solicitation.
“I really think they need to be kept in check,” says OSU student Katie Wolf. “This is the second time this year they’ve had trouble with police.”
She’s talking about quarterback JT Barrett’s run in with the law.
Last October he was cited for driving under the influence.
And now with another player involved with a police incident, some students are worried about the ‘black eye’ it gives the football team and the university.
” it’s not great to see the reputation of the football team be put into question, ” says OSU freshman Andrew Levy.
And student Hank McNamara says, “this isn’t the Buckeye way for sure.”
According to prosecutors, in order for police to charge someone with solicitation, there has to be intent to hire someone for sexual activity. No money necessarily has to exchange hands, Franklin County prosecutor Ron O’Brien says a price has to be mentioned.
Washington is due in court on December 17th.
