Treon Harris’s Attorney Releases Statement Regarding Sexual Battery Accusations

By

UPDATE, 4:10 p.m.Johnson & Osteryoung, P.A. released a statement Thursday in response to an 18-page redacted statement released by the University of Florida the day before.

Treon Harris’ attorney Huntley Johnson said he found the University’s statement was leading to “some pretty wild speculation,” and wanted to “attempt to set the record straight.”

Harris is currently not allowed on the University campus, Johnson said. He is able to continue taking the online classes that he was already enrolled in, but is not allowed to attend any on campus classes. The University would neither confirm nor deny this statement as student privacy laws protect specific student information.

His suspension from campus also includes his residence hall, the Springs Complex, so Harris is currently off campus. “I understand he’s living in an apartment,” Johnson said.

Original Post: Johnson & Osteryoung P. A. released a statement “to help clarify the circumstances surrounding the investigation of Treon Harris.”

Harris was accused of sexual battery on Monday. He has been suspended from all football team activities and the University of Florida’s campus pending completion of the investigation.
