The counterfeit case involving Western Kentucky University women's basketball player Arnika Brown could be headed to Christian Circuit Court after her case was waived to a grand jury in Christian District Court on Wednesday.
The next step for the case is for the grand jury to send an indictment to Christian Circuit Court, remand the case to Christian District Court or send down a "no true bill."
To remand the case the grand jury would have to determine that only misdemeanors should be tried, while a "no true bill" would likely require a witness coming forward or a piece of evidence being presented that renders any further pursuit of the case unnecessary.
The 2008 Sun Belt Conference freshman of the year was charged with 11 counts of Possession of a Forged Instrument, First Degree - all felonies - and five counts of Theft by Deception Under $300 - all misdemeanors. Police say Brown and Yolanda Trice used counterfeit $100 bills at five fast food restaurants earlier this month in Hopkinsville.
A decision from the grand jury is expected to be handed down within a month.
