on

In a deal with prosecutors, basketball analyst Greg Anthony agreed to perform community service in exchange for the dismissal of a charge of soliciting a prostitute.

Under terms of the deferred prosecution deal announced Wednesday, Anthony must commit to 32 hours of service and avoid legal trouble for four months.

Anthony, 47, was arrested on the misdemeanor charge at a hotel in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 16. He had responded to an online escort ad placed by authorities, according to court documents.

Anthony, a former star at UNLV who played in the NBA for 11 years, has apologized publicly to his wife, family and colleagues, calling it a “lapse of judgment.”

Anthony, who worked as an analyst on college basketball broadcasts, remains suspended indefinitely by CBS.
