Duncan to serve 48-hour sentence, pay $100 fine

January 22, 2002


A Kansas University football player will serve two days in the Douglas County Jail and pay a $100 fine for shoplifting at a Lawrence discount store.

Reggie Duncan, a 20-year-old sophomore running back from Killeen, Tex., had been in a diversion program in an attempt to get the misdemeanor theft charge dismissed. The diversion was revoked today in Lawrence Municipal Court. Duncan then pleaded guilty to the charge before Judge Randy McGrath.

Duncan will report to the Douglas County Jail sometime Friday evening and then be released sometime Sunday after serving 48 hours, his attorney Ron Schneider said.

Duncan was charged following a September 2000 shoplifing incident at the Target store in Lawrence.

Last year he was charged in Douglas County District Court with stealing a KU coed's purse. He is on probation for that incident.
