Florida State receiver Greg Dent, a projected starter this fall, was arraigned on second-degree sexual assault charges Monday, according to David M. Hale of NoleNation. Dent is facing a felony count that likely means an indefinite suspension and a potential jail term of up to 15 years. He was arrested Sunday night on a single count of sexual assault on a victim over the age of 12.
Dent was in court on Monday. Hale wrote that "the alleged victim intended to spend the night at Dent's off-campus apartment Saturday. The alleged victim awoke to find Dent kissing her and asked him to stop. After several additional attempts, Dent left the room. Within a few moments, Dent returned to the room naked and became "very aggressive in touching the victim, forcibly removing her clothes."
There has been no official statement from Florida State, but university policy requires any student-athlete facing felony charges to be suspended. Tim Jansen, Dent's attorney, told Hale, "It's certainly an offense that's going to get him suspended."
