Theodore charged with weapons posession
A South Orange/Maplewood judge ruled Tuesday there was probable cause that Seton Hall guard Jordan Theodore was in possession of a handgun on school grounds following the Villanova-Seton Hall game at the Prudential Center on Feb. 15, according to ZagsBlog.com.
The incident followed an alleged attack on Theodore’s mother by a family member of former Seton Hall guard Keon Lawrence in the stands of the Prudential Center during the game, the blog said.
According to an SNY.tv report, the charge, unlawful possession of of a weapon on school property, is a third-degree offense, carries a maximum penalty of five years incarceration.
The SNY report added that South Orange/Maplewood judge Jonathan Rosenbluth did not find probable cause in three of the four complaints filed against Theodore by Darlene Epps, Lawrence’s mother — aggravated assault, aggravated assault with a vehicle and possession of a firearm without a permit.
Theodore, a junior from Englewood, will be notified of a date of arraignment in Superior Court in Newark, the article said.
