Attorney Jason Neff represents Brent Calloway, one of the former UA football players arrested.
Neff says at most they thought he could be suspended from school at a later date, but not kicked out two weeks after his arrest.
According to Neff, Brent is still in Tuscaloosa and living with a friend off campus right now. They claim school officials said he could finish out the semester while they investigated the charges against him.
Calloway faces fraudulent use of a credit card charges. Three other football players are accused of beating up two students and taking their property which included cash, a laptop and debit and credit cards. Calloway is only accused of using a stolen student action card to buy snacks from a vending machine in Bryant Hall.
Neff feels that Calloway is being lumped together with the other former players.
"Brent is a student who was a football player. He's got caught up in a terrible situation and so depending on how this plays out its going to affect his life for a long time and so I think Brent would want people to know he's human too and people do make mistakes," Jason Neff said.
Calloway and the other players are scheduled to appear in court in about three weeks.
A spokesperson for the university, Shane Dorrill, said the university will not comment on if the players were expelled or suspended because Judicial Affairs does not discuss disciplinary proceedings.
And as for the possibility of the former students returning to UA in the future, Dorrill says:
"If at some point in the future, these
individuals decide to petition to be readmitted, UA's decision will include
consideration of the outcome of the criminal charges they currently face as
well as any behavioral issues that may occur in the intervening years."
