Georgia junior outside linebacker James DeLoach and sophomore defensive lineman Jon Taylor will not face any game suspensions as a result of misdemeanor charges in March for trying to cash stipend checks twice, the university announced Thursday.

DeLoach and Taylor appeared in court Thursday along with former Bulldogs players Tray Matthews and Uriah LeMay. All four entered a pretrial intervention program, and DeLoach and Taylor each was sentenced to 40 hours of community service and a $300 fine.

Matthews, a sophomore safety who was dismissed from the program this week, received 60 hours of community service and a $300 fine. LeMay, a redshirt freshman receiver, received 80 hours and a $400 fine.

The university release added that DeLoach and Taylor will face "significant additional internal discipline."
