According to University of Georgia Police, three of the players were depositing their regularly-scheduled stipend checks on their mobile phone banking apps, then taking them to a local convenience story for cashing immediately afterward, effective cashing the checks twice.

The charges are misdemeanors, so they will probably just get a slap on the wrist. Georgia’s spring practice starts today.
