Free[d] JayVaughn

The last we had heard of JayVaughn Pinkston's assault case, stemming from a fight with two members of a Villanova fraternity last fall, his attorney, James Famiglio, was hoping to enroll the former McDonalds All-American in the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. Under that program, Pinskton would serve one year of probation with a community service requirement and his charges would be dropped if he completed the program without issue.

In early August the Montgomery County prosecutor had not yet decided whether to offer the ARD program to Pinkston. On October 17, 2011, however, a motion was filed with the Court of Common Pleas to place Pinkston in the program. Both parties have now agreed to the program, but the return date and hearing on that motion have not come yet (it usually takes two or three weeks to schedule a motion hearing.

Given that both parties have consented to it, that hearing will likely be a formality.

Last season, Pinkston was forced to sit out by Villanova after the assault charges emerged. He spent that time working in a warehouse and living with a family in the Villanova area — where he had to pay rent. He also told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he coached a youth basketball team of 10-year-olds, a fun experience for the redshirt freshman.

Now, the suspension is over, and Pinkston will soon don the Villanova uniform in the first meaningful college game of his career. Mark your calendars for November 11, 2011, when JayVaughn should make his debut at the Pavilion against Monmouth University.
