Georgia football players Tray Matthews, Jonathan Taylor, James DeLoach, and Uriah LeMay have been charged with multiple counts of theft by deception and bonded out of the Clarke County Jail on Monday night after being booked. Here is the story according to OnlineAthens.com,
quote:

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.
