Former University of Hawaii basketball player Yves "Tes" Whitlock admitted in state court yesterday to selling marijuana to an undercover police officer.
Whitlock pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree promotion of a detrimental drug. He was facing three counts for allegedly selling a total of eight ounces of marijuana for $3,600 to the same undercover police officer on three occasions in February 2007.
He could get five years in prison when a state judge sentences him in November.
However, because he has no prior convictions, Whitlock can ask the judge for a deferral and the opportunity to remove the charge from his criminal record.
Whitlock was a starting guard on the UH men’s basketball team in 1994 and 1995.
