Florida players, including Antonio Callaway, Jordan Scarlett, receive pre-trial intervention

Florida players, including Antonio Callaway, Jordan Scarlett, receive pre-trial intervention”

All but two of the nine Florida players suspended because of credit card fraud allegations will enter a pre-trial diversion program.

The other players offered intervention include defensive lineman Keivonnis Davis and Richerd Desir-Jones, linebackers James Houstin IV and Ventrell Miller, and wide receiver Rick Wells. Offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort is reportedly facing up to 30 felony charges and defensive end Jordan Smith is facing five.

The seven still may not play this season and have to appear before Florida's Student Code of Conduct Committee.

"After reviewing the facts involved, the relative roles and culpability of the various defendants, and their individual backgrounds, seven of the defendants have been identified as being qualified for participation in a statutory felony pre-trial intervention program", Cervone said in a statement.

Sworn affidavits were filed against the accused on September 25, though the state has not yet formally charged any of the nine players.

The players still face potential discipline by the university, Coach Jim McElwain told reporters Thursday. "We have respected the appropriate process from the beginning and will continue to do so".

Two other suspended Florida players remain under investigation. That means student-athletes like football players would be ineligible to compete under such circumstances.

If they complete the program, the charges would be removed from their records. One could see players in PTD potentially having their suspensions lifted with punishment being time served if allowed to continue in school.

The interventions must still be formally approved by a judge.

Florida (3-3, 3-2 SEC) plays No. 3 Georgia (7-0, 4-0) in Jacksonville on Saturday, but the players are not expected to be reinstated by then.

In other words, it is unlikely that any of the nine players charged will suit up for the Gators this season.

It was reported Thursday that Gators receiver Antonio Callaway has entered a pre-trial intervention agreement.
