UF Releases Preliminary Report on the Harris Battery Accusation


The University of Florida released a redacted incident report this afternoon on the accusations of sexual battery reported earlier this week by Florida freshman quarterback Treon Harris.

The University is citing student privacy regulations in releasing an 18-page document that consists mostly of grey boxes. The only information in the report is information on Harris and the reporting officer.

UF spokesperson Janine Sikes wrote in an e-mail to media that the report “has been redacted in accordance with 119.071(2)(c)1. Active criminal intelligence information and active criminal investigative information are exempt from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State Constitution.”

Sikes also wrote that the University “cannot discuss what is happening at all because it is protected by student privacy laws. What I can provide you with is an overview of the Student Conduct Code process.” Sikes referenced the Student Conduct Code site.

No formal charges have been publicly filed against Harris in this incident.

Here’s the report:
