Former University of Missouri football running back and co-captain Derrick Washington has been sentenced to five years in prison for the off-campus sexual assault of a former Tiger athletics tutor.

Boone County Circuit Judge Kevin Crane sentenced Washington on Monday afternoon, two months after a Columbia jury found him guilty of forcibly fondling the woman in June 2010.
