Ex-Miami signee Angelo Jean-Louis hit with felony charges

Angelo Jean-Louis

A highly-touted member of Miami’s 2012 recruiting class, Angelo Jean-Louis was an academic non-qualifier and instead enrolled at Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia.  In December, the wide receiver surprised many by signing with Marshall.

Now, Jean-Louis has a little more to worry about for the foreseeable future than where or if he will play football in 2013.

As of the time of this post, Jean-Louis is listed as an inmate in West Virginia’s Western Regional Jail after being booked into the facility earlier today.  The receiver’s “Imprisonment Status” is listed as “Pre-Trial Felon.”

Specifically, Jean-Louis was charged with two felony counts of fraudulent use of an access device.  Derek Redd of the Charleston Daily Mail reports that the charges stem from Jean-Louis allegedly using a stolen credit card twice — one purchase for $14 and one for $11, both occurring at a local 7-Eleven (smdh).

Bail has been set at $20,000.

“We are aware of his situation. We will handle the matter internally and appropriately,” the school said in a statement.

According to Chuck Landon of the Huntington Herald-Dispatch, Jean-Louis is enrolled at Marshall but is sitting out the spring as an academic non-qualifier.

A four-star recruit, Jean-Louis was one of the highest-rated member of the Hurricanes’ 2012 class.  Jean-Louis was the No. 8 athlete in the country according to that recruiting service, and was rated as the No. 22 player at any position in the state of Florida.

    Hahahaha…don’t hurt yourself with that stretch John!

    “Marshall 2013 signee”, “Future Marshall player” just didn’t have the same ring as “Ex-Miami signee”…even though he didn’t qualify in 2012 and subsequently wasn’t recruited in 2013.

    Marshall takes chances on thugs other schools won’t touch in hopes of winning 50% of their games-they can’t recruit top notch kids.

    As sportsfix stated Marshall will take any reject from other schools. They want to win so bad they will take anyone. They cant recruit players with good grades,only players that have been in jail,cant read or write or both. They will do anything to win a ball game.
