Former Tight End Brent Wilkerson Sentenced To Five Years Probation For Indecent Assault

Former Penn State tight end Brent Wilkerson has been sentenced to five years probation and was ordered to register as a sex offender on Tuesday after a guilty plea in his indecent assault case.

The case stems from a February incident in which Wilkerson kissed and fondled a woman despite her requests for him to stop. Wilkerson also masturbated in front of the woman without her consent. Police photographed bruising on the woman’s neck that occurred as a result of Wilkerson’s kissing. “I know what I did was wrong,” Wilkerson allegedly told police. “I know what I did was wrong. After a couple ‘No’s’ I should have left after the first ‘No.’”

Wilkerson was dismissed from the football team in March. Wilkerson joined the program in 2012, and would go on to record eight catches for 57 yards and a touchdown over the course of his career.
