Florida State WR Greg Dent Arrested on Allegation of Sexual Assault


Florida State Seminoles wide receiver Greg Dent has been arrested on allegations of sexual assault. According to WarChant.com, Dent was booked in Leon County Jail on Sunday night and he is being held without bond. Dent has allegedly violated Florida Statute 794.011-5, which is a second degree felony.

The statute reads:

“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.”

While Dent is facing felony charges, the redshirt senior will be ineligible to play because of rules set by the university for student-athletes. 

Right now, playing football is not anything that he should be worried about. He needs to focus on resolving his legal issues as the legal process plays out to determine whether he is innocent or guilty.

Dent is being arraigned this morning, where bond will be set.
