UNC signee pleads guilty

North Carolina signee JamesOn Curry received a suspended sentence and probation on Monday in Alamance County Superior Court, after pleading guilty to two felony counts of marijuana possession with intent to sell.

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill basketball recruit Jameson Curry has entered guilty pleas to charges of selling and delivering marijuana to an undercover officer for the Alamance County Sheriff's Office.

Curry entered his pleas Monday in Alamance County Superior Court. Judge Kenneth Titus gave Curry a suspended sentence of five to six months on each charge and placed him on 36 months probation. He also was ordered to perform 200 hours of community service.

Approached in the lobby of the Final Four coaches hotel in San Antonio, UNC coach Roy Williams told SportsLine.com that he had decided Curry's fate but couldn't share it until meeting with the player's family in Mebane, N.C., after returning to campus on Tuesday.

According to UNC athletic department policy, current student-athletes convicted of a felony are permanently ineligible to play for the Tar Heels. As of Monday morning no such rule extended to UNC recruits, even ones who have signed a letter-of-intent as Curry has done, but the Curry case is expected to set that precedent.
