ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia players James DeLoach and Jonathan Taylor face "significant additional internal discipline" but no suspensions after being accepted into a pre-trial intervention program Thursday for their March arrests for illegal check cashing.
DeLoach, Taylor, and two former Georgia players -- safety Tray Matthews and wide receiver Uriah LeMay -- appeared in Clarke County State Court on Thursday. Misdemeanor charges for the four will be dropped if they complete the program.
Matthews was dismissed from the team by coach Mark Richt on Tuesday. LeMay has left Georgia and plans to transfer.
The four were charged with receiving double payments for checks of $71.50 issued by the Georgia athletic department.
According to a statement released by Georgia, DeLoach and Taylor face discipline from the athletic association and the football program.
