On Aug. 18, 2017 former Georgia Southern director of strength and conditioning, Tredell K. Dorsey, was sentenced to 12 months probation after reaching a deal with State of Georgia prosecutors and pleading guilty to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct, according to court documents.

The plea deal marked the end of a nearly year long process that began with a GS Title IX Office investigation in July of 2016. After the investigation, Dorsey was terminated by the university for violating the GS harassment policy, according to his personnel file.

A court case soon followed and Dorsey was indicted on two charges of sexual battery in Bulloch County Superior Court on Nov. 8, 2016. In addition to the 12 month probation, Dorsey was fined for $1,305, according to court documents.

Dorsey has had a brush in with the law prior to his employment at GS. In May of 2015, Dorsey was arrested and charged with simple battery in Fayetteville, Ga. while employed at Georgia State University. The case was eventually settled in a pre-trial intervention which placed Dorsey on six-months probation, requiring he pay the victim a restitution fee and he complete an anger management course, according to the court documents.
