Former Michigan offensive lineman and Washington State football commit Logan Tuley-Tillman pleaded guilty to filming a sexual act of a woman without her consent, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday
Washington State football commit Logan Tuley-Tillman pleaded guilty Monday to filming a sexual act of a woman without her consent, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Tuley-Tillman, a former Michigan offensive lineman, went in front of Judge David Swartz at the Washtenaw County Trial Court and pleaded guilty to illegally capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person, and committing a crime with a computer.
The 20-year-old initially was charged with three felonies. In exchange for his two guilty pleas, one other count of illegally capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person will dropped at his sentencing, and he will be sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which applies to criminal offenses committed by individuals between ages 17 and 24.
Under Michigan law, the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act allows young offenders to keep a criminal act off their record if they successfully serve their sentence and go through a probation period.

Tuley-Tillman is scheduled to be sentenced March 28.
The case stems from a September incident in which Tuley-Tillman was accused of filming a video of himself having sex with a woman without the woman’s consent. The sex was consensual, the woman said in the police report.
Per the report filed with the Ann Arbor (Mich.) Police Department, Tuley-Tillman admitted that he had been too drunk to remember using the woman’s phone to record their sexual activity and then send it to himself.
He was kicked off the Michigan football team in September for what coach Jim Harbaugh termed “conduct unacceptable of a Michigan student-athlete” but will graduate from Michigan this spring. He will be eligible to transfer to another school and play immediately as a graduate transfer.
Tuley-Tillman took an official visit to Washington State in January and committed to the Cougars, but he has since also visited Houston. He and his attorney David Nacht declined comment to the Detroit Free Press on Monday.
