The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office announced Tuesday that pending criminal charges against Seton Hall point guard Jordan Theodore have been dismissed. Theodore, a rising senior from Englewood, N.J., had been accused of displaying a handgun during an on-campus altercation on Feb. 15 following the Villanova-Seton Hall game at The Prudential Center.
A criminal complaint had been filed by Darlene Epps, the mother of former Seton Hall guard Keon Lawrence, and forwarded to the Prosecutor’s Office. After receiving the complaint, Prosecutor’s detectives conducted an investigation of the incident. As the investigation concluded, a determination was made that there is insufficient credible evidence to warrant prosecution.
Theodore, who starred at Paterson Catholic, averaged 11 points, 4.4 assists and 3.1 rebounds last season.
Lawrence was dismissed during the season by head coach Kevin Willard for violating team rules.
