Former UF player charged with credit card fraud

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The state attorney's office says former University of Florida football player Jamar Hornsby was charged with four misdemeanors for using the credit card of a dead woman.

Hornsby, a former safety, was arrested by the Alachua County Sheriff's office in May on charges that he used the dead woman's gas card for six months.

The woman, also a University of Florida student, was killed along with another player in a motorcycle accident. Hornsby, 21, was kicked off the team after he turned himself in after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest in May.

The state attorney's office says prosecutors charged Hornsby on Monday with the unauthorized use of a credit card on the following dates: Nov. 2, 2007, Jan. 14, March 6 and April 24.

Hornsby's lawyer, Huntley Johnson, said his client will plead not guilty and that he believes that there will be a resolution to the case without a trial.
