Va. Tech players to be disciplined

BLACKSBURG, Va., May 19 (UPI) -- Three Virginia Tech football players convicted last week of contributing to the delinquency of minors will face disciplinary action by the school.

The three, quarterback Marcus Vick, wide receiver Brenden Hill and running back Mike Imoh, were sentenced to jail time and fines for misdemeanor counts for giving alcohol to underage teenage girls. They also allegedly encouraged the girls to strip and to have sex with them however the judge ruled there was insufficient evidence of that.

Athletic Director Jim Weaver did not say what the sanctions would be but in a statement said, "When the season starts, the sanctions will be readily apparent."

The Richmond Times-Dispatch said that could indicate serious bench time for the three when the season begins.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, also known as the Buckley Amendment, student disciplinary actions are confidential and will not be disclosed, Weaver said in a statement.

Attorneys for Vick, Hill, and Imoh have indicated they may appeal the decisions and may seek jury trials. The three remain free pending a decision on new trials.
