On April 10th, Florida basketballers Erik Murphy and Cody Larson were arrested — along with manager Joshua Adel — and charged with felony third-degree burglary for attempting to break into a car outside a St. Augustine, Florida bar.
The charges against Adel were recently dropped entirely while those against Murphy and Larson were reduced to misdemeanor trespassing charges. Larson has now pled not guilty to that charge. Murphy has yet to enter a plea.
Larson has a pre-trial conference scheduled for July 19th. Law enforcement officials in South Dakota — Larson’s home state — are waiting on the outcome of Larson’s new legal case before deciding what to do regarding legal troubles he found himself in prior to signing with UF.
The Sioux Falls native allegedly “facilitated the use of hydrocodone” in his home in February of 2010. Larson received a suspended 120-day jail sentence last May. He was ordered to perform community service and pay a fine and court costs.
Larson was required to obey all laws for two years in order for his case to be dropped.
That might explain why someone who fled the scene and was caught on audio tape discussing the alleged car break-in is now pleading not guilty to a reduced charge.
