ROCKVILLE, Conn. (AP) — A star player on the national champion University of Connecticut field hockey team accused of stealing $34 in makeup from the campus bookstore has applied for a probation program that could clear her record.

Charlotte Veitner applied for accelerated rehabilitation Wednesday in Rockville Superior Court. The program for first-time, nonviolent offenders results in charges being erased after a probation period.

Her lawyer, Robert Britt, says he won’t comment while the case is pending.

UConn officials say they can’t comment because of student privacy laws.
