Report: Central Michigan CB indefinitely suspended, facing felony charges
Central Michigan cornerback Kyron McKinnie-Harper has been indefinitely suspended by head coach Jim McElwain and is facing multiple charges, including two felonies, according to a report.
According to a report from Central Michigan Life — the university’s newspaper — an arrest warrant was issued for McKinnie-Harper. He is facing several criminal charges, including one count of using a computer to commit a crime, one count of unauthorized computer access, one count of computer fraud and three counts of larceny by conversion.
McElwain recently released a statement, saying McKinnie-Harper had been indefinitely suspended for a violation of team rules. The head coach would not elaborate on the situation, however.
McKinnie-Harper is charged with one felony larceny count of more than $1,000, less than $20,000. Conviction could result in 5 years in prison and/or fines of up to $10,000 or 3 times the value of the stolen property. He also faces two misdemeanor larceny counts of $200, less than $1,000. A conviction is punishable by 1 year in jail and/or fines of up to $2,000 or 3 times the value of the stolen property. Using a computer to commit a crime is a felony that could result in 4-to-10 years in prison.
Last season, McKinnie-Harper appeared in 12 games for the Chippewas. He recorded 36 tackles, 10 pass break-ups and forced two fumbles. Central Michigan finished the season 8-6.
