William John Scott is the kind of name you'd expect to find on historical documents written by Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Jackson, not the name of someone accused of stealing historical documents written by Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Jackson.â†µ
William John Scott is a freshman at Drew University. He studies political science. He plays defense on the lacrosse team. He describes himself onâ†µ as a night person who likes to party.
But federal prosecutors say he is something else: a busy archives thief who stole famous letters written by a founder of the United Methodist Church and world leaders, includingâ†µ and Madame Chiang Kai-Shek.
Scott (or is it John Scott?) faces as much as 10 years in prison if convicted. Honestly, it's still better than what usually comes up when college lacrosse players are accused of felonies.â†µ
