Richt still mulling disciplinary options for four double-dippers

By The Associated Press
ATHENS -- Georgia coach Mark Richt said Tuesday he's still deciding how to discipline four players arrested last week on charges of illegal check-cashing.

The players, including starting safety Tray Matthews, are participating in spring practice, which continued on Tuesday. Richt said that does not mean he has ruled out dismissals for the group, which also includes defensive linemen Jonathan Taylor and James DeLoach and wide receiver Uriah LeMay.

"I wouldn't put anything out of the realm of possibilities right now," Richt said. "Right now we're just allowing them to continue to work."

Richt said Tuesday the four, who were charged with receiving double payments for checks of $71.50 issued by the Georgia athletic department, have been assigned extra work, including early morning running.

"There's more to come," Richt said. "I'm just thinking it through real good."

The four players, who were arrested by University of Georgia police, face misdemeanor charges of theft by deception.

Matthews, Taylor and DeLoach deposited the paper checks through a mobile device and also cashed the checks at a convenience store, according to University of Georgia Chief of Police Jimmy Williamson.

LeMay was charged with cashing a roommate's check which already had been deposited through a mobile device, according to Williamson.
