Ex-hoops star reports to jail
September 4, 2009
On Monday, a judge on the West Side of Summit County gave work release to a convicted batterer who reported this week to the Summit County jail.
But Judge Bruce Lubeck increased the time former college hoops star Teddy Dupay will spend behind bars for assaulting a woman at Stein Eriksen Lodge in June 2008.
Inmates on work release stay employed by getting out of jail during the day to work. But Lubeck did not grant work release to Dupay when he sentenced the 30-year-old in August to serve 30 days. Dupay will now serve 60 days, according to court papers.
Dupay pleaded guilty in 3rd District Court in June to aggravated assault, a third-degree felony. The ex-Florida Gator was a shooting guard when the school played in the NCAA championship basketball game in 2000.
He also pleaded guilty to threat against life and intoxication, which are both misdemeanors. Dupay was initially charged with three first-degree felonies for rape, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault.
When he was sentenced this month, Dupay told Lubeck he was "very apologetic." The case captured national attention because of notoriety Dupay gained as a college hoops star.
