Times Herald: JayVaughn Pinkston accused of violating probation

Developing Story

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Times Herald is reporting that Montgomery County officials have made a request to revoke Villanova Senior JayVaughn Pinkston's enrollment in the county’s Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. According to the Times Herald, Pinkston has, "allegedly violated his supervision by failing to report to probation officers, failing to complete community service and failing to pay fines and costs."

In May 2013, Pinkston was admitted to the ARD program by a Montgomery County judge. This would allow the Brooklyn native to clear his record in two years after being involved in an off-campus incident involving two other Villanova students in 2010. The judge "also ordered Pinkston to complete anger management classes, to pay $8,089 in restitution to cover medical expenses incurred by the alleged victims," and to pen apology letters to the students.

The paperwork notes that Pinkston must appear in Court on March 31 to address the matter of not reporting since November 2013 and failing to complete his mandatory community service hours. The District Attorney also notes that Pinkston has failed to pay nearly $11k in restitution from the incident. Had JayVaughn complete the program, he would clear his record although without admitting guilt. The probation would have ended on May 21, 2015.

The Times Herald was able to get in touch with Pinkston’s lawyer, James D. Famiglio.

The TH noted:

[Famiglio] had not yet seen the petition. However, Famiglio maintained Pinkston had performed the community service but that the entity with which he completed it had not reported all the hours to county authorities.

Pinkston is averaging 10.1 points and 5.8 rebounds per game this season for the Wildcats.

For many Villanova fans, this seemed to be an issue of the past. Sadly, it has arisen again.
