Utah State senior center Jarred Shaw was sentenced to serve a 10-day jail term, on March 17, as a consequence for pleading guilty to possession of marijuana earlier this year .

The Herald Journal of Logan reported that Shaw appeared in a Logan (Utah) court Monday alongside assistant coach Tarvish Felton. Shaw will serve his sentence in the Cache County Jail so that he can complete his schooling.

Shaw was charged in December with distribution of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony offense that could have sent him to prison for one to 15 years. He was also charged with use or possession of drug paraphernalia and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The delinquency of a minor charge stems from Shaw buying marijuana for two high school girls that he was hanging out with.

However, in a plea deal with prosecutors, the paraphernalia charge and the delinquency with a minor charge were dismissed. The distribution charge was also dropped to possession of a controlled substance as part of the plea deal.

Shaw started his college career at Oklahoma State.

Shaw, who was suspended for five games in December, led Utah State (18-14) with 14.2 points and 8.2 rebounds a game. The Aggies finished eighth in the Mountain West Conference with a 7-11 record and did not receive an invitation to any of the four postseason tournaments.
