Erik Murphy Reaches Plea Deal
After Gator Basketball players Erik Murphy and Cody Larson were faced with charges of misdemeanor trespassing back in April, one of them has put their legal issues behind them.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Forward Erik Murphy has reached a plea bargain with the prosecution and signed an agreement this past Wednesday.
The 6'10 incoming junior accepted deferred prosecution including community service and $440 in restitution and court costs.
Both Murphy and his partner-in-crime have been suspended from the team since the arrest and are currently enrolled in summer classes and are participating in workouts.
As of today, Florida spokesman Denver Parler stated there has not been a change in the boys status on the basketball team thus far.
Larson is sticking to his plea of not guilty, with a court date set for July 19th.
