Multnomah County Circuit Judge Henry J. Kantor agreed to dismiss a harassment charge against basketball player after a civil compromise was reached, according to court records.

Jones must pay $10,000 to a charitable organization that benefits the homeless, as designated by the alleged victim’s lawyer, according to the compromise obtained by The Oregonian Tuesday.
