Iowa’s WR Johnson-Koulianos Hires Attorney for Troubled Hawkeyes

Posted By Debbie Baratz On Dec 17 2010 @ 4:38 pm In Iowa | No Comments

After last week’s arrest for drugs, Iowa’s senior wide receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos (DJK) has hired Des Moines high profile criminal attorney Alfredo Parrish [1] to represent him.

Parrish has previously defended Iowa athletes in trouble. He represented Iowa basketball player Pierre Pierce  [2] in 2005 for sexual abuse and former Iowa football player Abe Satterfield in 2007 for sexual assault. Pierce served two years in prison and Satterfield is awaiting sentencing. 

Parrish filed papers on Wednesday to defend Johnson. DJK was charged last week with six misdemeanor drug charges; they included  possession of cocaine, marijuana and prescription drugs and keeping a drug home. Upon DJK’s arrest, police also seized $3,000 in cash, a digital scale, marijuana, cocaine and prescription drugs.

DJK was suspended by Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz from team activities after his arrest; he will not play at the upcoming Insight Bowl.  

The wide receiver [3]had a great season with 46 catches for 745 yards and 10 touchdowns. During this season, he became Iowa’s all-time leading receiver in yards and receptions.
