Jacksonville graduate among UF football players facing charges for fraud

GAINESVILLE | Nine University of Florida football players suspended during an investigation into credit card fraud face the prospect of felony charges, according to Alachua County Clerk of Court records.

According to a report by Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times, the players have been accused of adding to their university bookstore debit accounts with credit cards they did not own.

Wide receiver Antonio Callaway, running back Jordan Scarlett, defensive end Keivonnis Davis, linebacker James Houston, wide receiver Rick Wells, linebacker Ventrell Miller and defensive tackle Richerd Desir-Jones are all facing two possible third-degree felony charges.

Mexicali is located about 240 miles from Phoenix and 124 miles from San Diego, just south of the California border and Interstate 8.

The two universal charges are for fraud (swindling property valued at under $20,000) and impersonation (using or possession of a person's identification without consent). The process could take "several weeks at a minimum", State Attorney Bill Cervone said. Funds from up to 12 other students' accounts were improperly used, according to the affidavit. A common PTD would work to ensure players without criminal records do not ultimately face these charges as they would be diverted into community service and programs that prevent future criminal acts. Redshirt freshman defensive lineman Jordan Smith, who was reportedly the ring leader or worst offender (depending on the report), faces five third-degree felony charges.

Multiple sources told ESPN that UF police were investigating multiple purchases the players made at the university bookstore.

"To say that I'll know exactly how the whole thing came about, I can't promise you that", Cervone said. The junior wide receiver has been charged with a third-degree felony.
