UF’s Larson Pleads Not Guilty To Trespassing Charge

In April, Florida basketballer Erik Murphy and Cody Larson were arrested — along with a team manager — for allegedly attempting to break into a car outside a St. Augustine, Florida bar.

Felony burglary charges were eventually reduced to criminal trespass charges.  (Charges against manager Josh Adel were dropped completely).  Larson entered a plea in his case yesterday and the plea was “not guilty.”

Murphy has yet to enter a plea.

If Larson is found guilty it’s possible that a previous court agreement he made in his home state of South Dakota could be affected.  So it should come as no surprise that Larson pled not guilty.

Murphy, Larson Still Suspended At UF

Charges have been reduced for Florida forwards Erik Murphy and Cody Larson, but Billy Donovan still isn’t ready to welcome them back to his basketball team.

Murphy, Larson and student-manager Joshua Adel were arrested last month for attempting to break into a car after a night of drinking.  The charges were dropped against Adel and Murphy and Larson now face only misdemeanor criminal trespass charges.

However, “It’s important to wait,” Donovan said.  “I think there is a lot of things they still have to go through.  For example, there was a report or perception that Josh Adel was quote-unquote the lookout.  That wasn’t the case.”  Meaning some facts of the case might continue to change.

“I’m disappointed with what’s happened.  I don’t think those kids and their families are a reflection of what has happened.  What I do think is this thing needs to get resolved, and once it gets resolved and once I find out what the resolution is I’ll react from there.”
