DeLoach, Taylor to face internal discipline from UGA for check cashing
James DeLoach and Jonathan Taylor will not be suspended for cashing university checks twice in the spring.
Defensive linemen James DeLoach and Jonathan Taylor, two of the four Georgia football players charged with theft by deception in March for double-cashing their stipend checks, will not face suspension after entering a pre-trial diversion program.
The other two players who appeared in court Thursday, Tray Matthews and Uriah LeMay (who was charged with depositing his roommates' check), are no longer with the football program. LeMay opted to transfer and Matthews was dismissed from the team on Tuesday.
UGA chief of police Jimmy Williamson described the scheme in March:
"Matthews, DeLoach and Taylor would basically take that check and deposit it through a mobile banking app," Williamson said. "And then within a short period of time would go to a local convenience store and cash the checks. So they basically would cash the check twice."
According to Mark Richt, DeLoach and Taylor "have and will face significant additional internal discipline from both the UGA athletic association and the football program."
