According to online court records, Kent State football player Julian Durden, 18, was charged Feb. 13 by Kent State University police on a felony count of receiving stolen property. He was accused by a fellow Korb Hall resident of stealing a woman’s bank debit card from her room Feb. 9. Durden lived on the same dorm floor as the Louisville woman.
A university official said Durden, a freshman from McKees Rock, Pa., is suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.
Durden was jailed for two days before a Pittsburgh relative posted 10 percent of a $20,000 bond set in the Kent branch of the Portage County Municipal Court.
Durden is due back in court for a preliminary hearing Feb. 22. He was assigned a public defender.
In addition, Durden was charged with marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. According to a summons issued Feb. 9 by Kent State police, Durden had a small amount of marijuana inside a grinder and a glass pipe containing marijuana residue. The citation was issued to Durden in the Korb Hall parking lot.
Court records show Durden was found guilty of the minor misdemeanor drug charges Feb. 11. As part of his plea, he was to be assessed by a drug counselor and seek treatment, if necessary.
If he successfully completes the diversion program, the misdemeanor charges would be dismissed. Durden was also fined $97 and court costs.
