    IA FB: Douglas pleads guilty to reduced fraud charge

    Iowa FB player pleads guilty to fraud charge - his second misdemeanor since joining team....

    Douglas pleads guilty to reduced fraud charge | GazetteOnline.com - Cedar Rapids, Iowa City


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Wow - no jail and just pay for what you stole

    That'll teach him.

    Where the hell is Judge Wapner when you need him?

    The (alledged) sexual assult assailants will probably only have to write "no means no" 500 times on the Johnson county courthouse blackboard, as well....

    Re: IA FB: Douglas pleads guilty to reduced fraud charge

    It would be good to compare this to rulings on similar cases to see of the punishment fits the crime.

    The funny thing is that this decision is coming down AFTER Douglas got nailed for shoplifting CD's. That's a little surprising.

    Or maybe he's going to get a little harsher treatment in that case - mowing public lawns or something.....

    Perhaps this development explains where Kirk has been....

    Just don't pee in public! That one really pisses Kirk off.

    Re: IA FB: Douglas pleads guilty to reduced fraud charge

    And that would be the kicker.

    KF booted the public pee-pee guy off the team. If, and I stress if, Douglas is allowed back - he would lose any respect I had for him as well as most of his credibility.

    But I seriously don't think Douglas will play another down for Iowa.

    Can we start a "Where's Kirk" game? We can track him down and see where he pops up.

    Re: IA FB: Douglas pleads guilty to reduced fraud charge

    Does anybody know if the charges were ever filed for stealing the CD/DVDs? That would potentially be his third misdemeanor in two years on the team. I know that happened after this incident so I would think that would blow away his defered sentence when that gets settled.

    He pled guilty to this and was fined.

    Too bad the big 10 has extra restrictions for transfers between conf schools. Otherwise KF could kick him off the hawk squad, then go after the Mich job and help him rehab by bringing him closer to home. Maybe Douglas could first transfer to Ariz and then be eligible for the Luke Recker rule.

    From that link... Hawk fans are pure genius.
