Florida CB Jaydon Hill involved in felony theft case

·1 min read

Florida’s Jaydon Hill signed a deferred prosecution agreement on July 28 after admitting to the theft of a debit card he used to pay over $1,600 in parking tickets, according to WUFT.

The junior cornerback is already out for the year after suffering a torn ACL and it’s unclear if the team has punished Hill for the felony charges. Hill will avoid three charges on his record if he completes 50 hours of community service, reimburses the $1,753 in stolen money and stays out of trouble for the next year.

Police tracked down Hill after tracing the parking citations that were paid. Surveillance footage also caught Hill pumping gas and getting food using the stolen card. Police questioned Hill on June 2 about the May 8 incident. He initially denied the accusations but quickly admitted to stealing the card after police found an image of the victim’s driver’s license on Hill’s phone.

Expected to be the No. 2 cornerback for the Gators this year before the injury, it’s unclear how the legal issues will impact Hill’s future at Florida. He’s played in 22 games over two seasons with UF and recorded 25 tackles and 10 pass breakups.
