ROCKVILLE, Conn. (AP) – A star player on the national champion University of Connecticut field hockey team charged with stealing $34 in makeup is waiting to hear whether she will be allowed into a probation program that could clear her record.

Charlotte Veitner is set to return to Rockville Superior Court on Tuesday to see if a judge approves her application for accelerated rehabilitation.
