GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Former University of North Dakota basketball star Jerome Beasley has been released from jail in a dispute over unpaid child support.

A judge ruled the 32-year-old Beasley wasn't told about his rights in the case.

Beasley was put in the Grand Forks County jail July 26 for allegedly not trying hard enough to pay his debts.

North Dakota child support enforcement records say Beasley owes more than $204,000 in spousal support to his former wife and child support for the couple's two children.

Beasley played two years at UND, averaging 24 points and eight rebounds a game. He was drafted by the Miami Heat in 2003 and released two years later.

The Grand Forks Herald reports Beasley has played professionally with teams in Australia, Israel, France and Cyprus.
