University of Georgia police allege that 11 student tuition checks were drawn from the UGA Athletic Association account and were presented for deposit or cashed twice, according to a UGA police incident report. The players were “basically double-dipping," by receiving the funds twice, in the words of UGA police chief Jimmy Williamson.
The checks were each in the amount of $71.50 and the total loss is valued at $786.50.
All charges are misdemeanors since they are of less than $500 value.
Matthews, a sophomore from Newnan, is facing three counts. Taylor and DeLoach are facing two counts and LeMay four.
Georgia opened up Spring Practice today and Mark Richt issued the following statement this morning:
"I'm aware of the situation and it will be handled in an appropriate way."
