Dotson, Fisher found guilty

Nearly a year after they were arrested at a Charlottesville apartment party, Virginia football player Demetrius Dotson and former player Duane Fisher were found guilty of marijuana possession in Albemarle General District Court last week. Court Clerk Windy Payne said the two are appealing the conviction, and the case will be heard again in August. Judge Stephen Helzin sentenced Dotson, a rising fifth-year wide receiver, and Fisher, a former defensive back, to suspended 30-day jail sentences and $50 fines, but the punishments will not be levied until the appeal is heard. The players' attorney, Lawrence Woodward, could not be reached for comment. After playing primarily on special teams last season, Fisher was not asked to return to the team for 2000, said Michael Colley, assistant athletic media relations director.

But with a new head coach, the loss of three starters in key positions, including legend Angela Hucles, and the addition of six freshmen, the clean slate of the Virginia women's soccer team just may be the cleanest of all. New coach Steve Swanson replaced April Heinrichs in February, who left Virginia for the U.S.
