Former UAF player pays price for theft

Posted: Friday, November 19, 2010

FAIRBANKS - A former University of Alaska Fairbanks basketball player says he still hopes to go pro in Europe after a petty theft cost him a conviction, jail time and hefty court fees.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported that 23-year-old Emmanuel Jenkins from Tacoma, Wash., was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days on probation and credit for time already served in jail.

A jury also convicted Jenkins of fraudulent use of an access device - in his case, a stolen debit card that bumped the theft up to a felony for buying items worth just $12.

His court fees have already cost Jenkins more than $1,000.

Jenkins apologized in court and said he made a "horrible decision."
