According to Keloland.com, suspended redshirt freshman Florida forward Cody Larson will face a judge on Friday in Sioux Falls, S.D., to determine if he will face jail time for violating terms of his suspended sentence.
Larson reached a plea deal with prosecutors on misdemeanor trespass charges last April for allegedly trying to break into a car in St. Augustine.
But at the time Larson was arrested, he also was on probation for a misdemeanor drug charge for sharing prescription medication with a former high school teammate. Larson received a 120-day suspended sentence. Minnehaha County (S.D.) State’s Attorney Aaron McGowan filed a motion this week to a judge to consider dropping the suspended sentence in favor of jail time.
The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Larson is listed on Florida’s 2011-12 roster. He also was recognized on the field with his teammates during the Tennessee game for UF’s 2011 Southeastern Conference regular-season title.
But team spokesman Denver Parler said that Larson remains suspended from the team. Florida opens practice on Oct. 15 and plays its first exhibition game Nov. 3 against Catholic University.
