Former UW basketball player Overton charged
Question of the Day
SEATTLE (AP) - Former Washington basketball player Venoy Overton was charged Friday in King County Superior Court with promoting prostitution involving an 18-year-old woman.
The prosecutor’s office says Overton remains in jail on $150,000 bail and will be arraigned June 30 at the Regional Justice Center in Kent.
Overton was arrested Thursday in South Seattle, as a result of a police investigation that began in May when undercover Kent officers stopped a suspected prostitute. She told them Overton brought her to the area and told her to perform sex acts for money that she would share with him.
A bail hearing that had been scheduled Friday afternoon was canceled when the case was moved to superior court.
Overton graduated earlier this month in Seattle. He had been a backup point guard for the Huskies.
