BLOOMINGTON — Illinois State basketball player Geoffrey Allen pleaded guilty Friday to possession of marijuana with intent to deliver the drug.
When contacted Friday in Utah, ISU coach Dan Muller said Allen is no longer a member of the team.
Allen was placed on 30 months probation and ordered to pay a $2,000 street value fine in addition to court costs and fees. A charge of calculated criminal marijuana conspiracy was dismissed in the plea agreement.
Normal police said after Allen’s arrest in December that the charges stem from an investigation into narcotics coming into the Twin Cities for distribution.
Allen, a 6-foot-6 swingman who transferred from Eastern Washington last summer, was suspended indefinitely by Muller for violation of team rules after his arrest. He had not played since Dec. 8 when he scored six points against Western Michigan.
