Hornsby Indicted, Dismissed by Nutt

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi football signee Jamar Hornsby will not play for the Rebels after his indictment on a felony aggravated assault charge.
Coach Houston Nutt issued a news release Friday afternoon that says the player has been released from his national letter of intent.
Hornsby pleaded not guilty in Oktibbeha County Circuit Court and had a trial date set for Nov. 2.
The 22-year-old safety from Jacksonville, Fla., faces up to 20 years in prison and is already on probation for a credit card fraud conviction in Florida that led to his dismissal by Gators coach Urban Meyer.
Florida State Attorney Bill Cervone says he will alert a judge to the indictment and Hornsby could be forced to serve four years in jail for violating his probation.
