MSU's Sims Formally Charged For Role In Crime Ring

Michigan State tight end Dion Sims has been formally charged for his role in a laptop theft ring that stole 104 laptops from Detroit Public Schools last year.

Sims was released on personal bond, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, on a charge of receiving and concealing stolen property.

Their next court date is Oct. 5 in 36th District Court.

Sims’ father, Donald, also pleaded guilty to a similar charge for using University of Michigan funds to buy $74,000 worth of computers. He will face a sentence of up to 15 years.

U-M police spokeswoman Diane Brown believes the two cases are connected. The obvious link between the cases is the two Sims family members, but that hasn’t been confirmed.
