Masoli, the Ducks first-team All-Pac-10 quarterback, will appear with former Ducks receiver Garrett Embry. Both will be arraigned in Lane County Circuit Court in connection with an alleged theft at the SAE fraternity at Oregon on Jan. 24.
Oregon officials had no comment. The Lane County District Attorney's office sent out a release only confirming that Masoli and Embry will appear in court together at 1:30 p.m. PDT.
The Oregonian reported that James will plead no contest to the charges "as part of a plea agreement that includes anger management, other punishment and gets him easier access to the school and a return to his athletics programs."
