The woman who accused a quarterback on the University of Florida’s football team of sexually assaulting her has withdrawn her complaint, according to a statement issued on Friday by the university.
The statement reads, in part: “The student who accused Treon Harris of sexual battery has withdrawn her criminal complaint. This means she is not pursuing criminal charges against him at this time but maintains the right to do so in the future.”
Mr. Harris was accused on Sunday of sexually assaulting a student in a campus residence hall. The football program acted swiftly in response, suspending Mr. Harris the next day. “The university always will take swift and decisive action when we have concerns about the safety of our students,” Friday’s statement reads.
