CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -Virginia fullback RaShawn Jackson is facing felony charges in connection with a campus burglary committed in 2007.
University police said Wednesday that Jackson faces one count of breaking and entering and one count of grand larceny in connection with the break-in at Cauthen Dormitory last November.
NBC-29 in Charlottesville reported that Jackson turned himself in Tuesday and was freed on bond. Police said no additional details were immediately available.
It also was not immediately clear why it took more than 11 months for charges to be placed in the case, but the arrest did not affect Jackson's status on the football team.
``At this time Rashawn Jackson is still a participating member of the football team,'' athletic director Craig Littlepage said in a statement distributed Wednesday night.
ned until such time as the legal process is resolved or additional information becomes available,'' Littlepage said.
The athletic department said it will have no additional comments until the case is resolved.
Jackson has a hearing scheduled in Albemarle General District Court on Nov. 20.
