BYU running back faces honor code violation: CNN/SI (AP) 16Jun99

BYU running back faces honor code violation

Associated Press

PROVO, UTAH (AP) -- BYU is reviewing the status of sophomore running back Junior Mahe in the wake of possible Honor Code violations. University spokesperson Carri Jenkins told reporters Tuesday that "there is review taking place right now, but no decision has been reached."

The violation was not disclosed and Mahe and his family could not be reached for comment. The Honor Code prohibits a variety of immoral activities, many of which, like cheating on tests, are similar to what is prohibited at other Universities. In addition, the Code prohibits premarital sex, alcohol, tobacco and ilicit drugs.

Mahe rushed for 425 yards on 87 carries last season as a freshman. He scored seven touchdowns for the Cougars.

A number of BYU athletes have run into Honor Code violations in recent years, including the highly publicized suspension of cornerback Heshi Robertson and the expulsion (later changed to withdrawl) of runningback Ronney Jenkins.
