ATHENS - The two current and two now-former Georgia players arrested in March on theft charges received pre-trial intervention on Thursday.
Tray Matthews, Uriah LeMay, James DeLoach and John Taylor will have all charges dropped against them as long as they meet terms of pre-trial intervention. Those terms were not available yet from the Athens-Clarke County clerk's office.
The four players were arrested in March on charges that they double-cashed scholarship checks from UGA. Matthews and LeMay have since left the team, while DeLoach and Taylor remain and will now await any further discipline from the team.
The players declined comment as they left the courtroom, accompanied by family and Bryant Gantt, the football team's program coordinator who worked in an Athens law office for 20 years.
Matthews was dismissed from Georgia on Tuesday, for an accumulation of issues that included the March arrests. Each player only appeared before the judge for about a minute, with the judge telling each that she suggested they make use of the opportunity afforded by PTI.
