Kitna is facing two counts of distribution of child exploitation material and three counts of possession of child pornography. Two of the five charges, which still need to be formalized by the state attorney's office, are second-degree felonies that could result in a prison term of up to 15 years and a fine of up to $10,000. The other three are third-degree felonies.
Kitna was released from jail on $80,000 bond Thursday, with the conditions of his release including an order not to have any unsupervised contact with minors and not to have any internet access.
His parents, Jon and Jennifer Kitna, promised Judge Meshon Rawls that they would supervise their 19-year-old son at home in Burleson, Texas. Jon Kitna, who played 14 seasons in the NFL, serves as a high school coach in Burleson.
A redshirt freshman, Jalen Kitna appeared in four games for the Gators this season, completing 10 of 14 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown.
Florida had suspended Kitna indefinitely immediately following his arrest Wednesday. The Gators had scrubbed Kitna's name from their roster and his biography from their website late Thursday, just hours after Kitna's first court appearance.
Although Kitna remained enrolled in classes Friday, the University of Florida Police Department issued him a trespass warning that bars him from campus for three years, pending the outcome of his court case. Kitna also would need to have to go through a student code of conduct hearing to be eligible to return.
The Orlando Sentinel first reported Kitna's dismissal from the team.
