He was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on counts of principal to theft and illegal possession of stolen items. This is not the first eBay listing for Sanders. His seller history shows nearly three-thousand-dollars worth of game-worn LSU gear.

>>EX-Penn State President To Face Trial On Sandusky Charges

(Harrisburg, PA) -- The former president of Penn State University and two other officials will go to trial on criminal charges related to the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal. The university's ex-President Gordon Spanier is accused of hampering the investigation into the assistant football coach's sexual molestation of boys. A Pennsylvania judge ruled that former Athletic Director Tim Curley and the school's ex-vice-President Gary Schultz will also face trial for failing to report suspected abuse by Sandusky to authorities. Sandusky was convicted in 2012 of molesting ten boys, some on the Penn State campus.
