Former CR coach pleads guilty to three charges including DUI, vandalism

Aaron Hungerford sentenced to 90 days in jail, $2K in fines


Former College of the Redwoods basketball coach Aaron Hungerford appeared in court for a trial setting hearing on Friday morning. When it was over, Hungerford had entered into a plea agreement with the District Attorney.


Hungerford pleaded guilty to one count of DUI, one count of vandalism and one count of driving on a suspended license stemming from two separate incidents in late 2018.

“You understand you’re not required to enter a plea today?” asked Judge Kaleb Cockrum to Hungerford, who appeared in court out of custody.

“Yes,” Hungerford replied as Cockrum then walked him through the process of entering his pleas.

Hungerford, who had been unemployed since he was fired from his position as head coach of the men’s basketball team at CR, was sentenced to 90 days in county jail and three years informal probation for the DUI charge and he also is being fined more than $2,000.

He also entered guilty pleas for vandalism after he sliced the tire on his girlfriend’s car. The charge of driving without a license was reduced from a misdemeanor to an infraction.
