Florida State receiver Greg Dent was arraigned on second-degree sexual assault charges Monday following an alleged sexual assault against a longtime female friend.
According to the police report, at approximately 3:30 a.m. Sunday, the victim awoke to Dent trying to kiss her on the lips. The victim told Dent "no" but Dent became "increasingly forceful" trying to kiss her. The victim then bit Dent's upper lip and he jumped out of the bed.
Within a few minutes, Dent returned to the bedroom naked and laid in the same direction as the victim. Dent began touching the victim and was able to pull off her shorts and underwear as she struggled to resist. The victim continued to resist, eventually grabbing Dent's hair with one hand and punching him in the head with the other.
The victim also tightened her legs as Dent tried to pull her legs apart. The report states that on two occasions, Dent was able to partially penetrate the victim.
The struggle continued until Dent and the victim fell on the floor. The victim was able to grab her belongings and run out of Dent's apartment. She reported the incident to the Tallahassee Police Department on Sunday.
Dent was given a $15,000 bond and is not allowed to have any contact with the alleged victim. Dent also faces a potential sentence of up to 15 years if found guilty.
"It's a very serious offense," attorney Tim Jansen told Warchant.com. "It's an offense that could send him to prison if he's convicted. It's certainly an offense that's going to get him suspended."
Dent, the Seminoles fifth-leading receiver a year ago, made great strides during the spring and was supposed to be one of Florida State’s best weapons this fall. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher has not announced a punishment for Dent or yet released a statement.
Dent, a rising senior, has 40 career receptions for 603 yards and four touchdowns.
