The Florida State Seminoles football program almost went a whole off-season without any major off the field issues. Almost is not enough.
Dent was charged Sunday night with sexual assault on a person over the age of 12 years old, according to the Leon County Sherrif’s Office online booking detail.
The statute: “A person who commits sexual battery upon a person 12 years of age or older, without that person’s consent, and in the process thereof does not use physical force and violence likely to cause serious personal injury commits a felony of the second degree.”
Dent’s attorney, Tim Jansen, told the Orlando Sentinel that his client will make his first court appearance at the Leon County Courthouse at 8:30 a.m. Monday. A bond amount will be set.
The 23 year old Dent, is a Belle Glade, Fla. native and a redshirt senior this fall, caught 27 passes for 355 yards and two touchdowns for Florida State in 2012.
