FARGO, N.D. -- The starting running back for North Dakota State wants jury trials on two charges of driving with a suspended license.

The Fargo-Moorhead Forum newspaper reports that Sam Ojuri was stopped by police on June 5 and July 14. Both of the charges against him are misdemeanors punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Ojuri, a junior from Barrington, Ill., pleaded guilty in January to an alcohol offense and was fined $100. He was suspended from the team in spring 2010 for an undisclosed violation of team rules and reinstated in January 2011.

NDSU is the defending NCAA Football Championship Subdivision champion.
