If Stealing Credit Cards Is Wrong, I Don't Wanna Be Josh Wright

Just when you thought the days of hearing about Josh Wright in a non-Utica King of Kings Basketball League sense were over...

From the Utica Observer-Dispatch (via the D.O. Sports Blog):
A former basketball player at Thomas R. Proctor Senior High School in Utica and Syracuse University was arraigned on a felony charge Wednesday evening in Westmoreland Town Court, prosecutors said.

Joshua Wright, 22, of Damiano Place, Utica, was charged Aug. 1 with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony, after he allegedly took a credit card from a friend’s purse in late June, police previously said. Wright then attempted to use the card to pay a $465 cell phone bill, police said.

Prosecutors said Wright’s case would be adjourned for 30 days before deciding how to proceed.
A $465 cell phone bill? That's a lot of unreturned calls to Jim Boeheim's hotel room in China begging for a twelfth chance.

As Tyler Dunne at the D.O. points out, it was really only a year ago that Wright was going to be a big component of the SU basketball team. One year later, he's desperately looking in couch cushions for 465,000 pennies to pay back his "friend" before the local prosecutors decide to proceed.

Josh, may I recommend a good attorney?
