Florida Football Player Arrested for Felony Battery

In Gainesville, a Florida football player, Jacquez Rickerson, was arrested for Florida felony battery. The alleged victim is his girlfriend. Mr. Rickerson allegedly slapped her, choked her, and covered her face with a pillow. This occurred at his girlfriend’s apartment. 

While it is true that violence occurs in relationships, it is also true that people make false accusations. Likewise, there are two sides to every story, and the truth is not always what is documented in the police report. Therefore, a criminal defendant that is charged with felony battery should have a Jacksonville Criminal Defense Attorney explore every defense possible in his case.

Felony battery is a very serious charge that may result in prison time. In Mr. Rickerson’s case, he has a lot to lose. Due to this battery arrest, he was kicked off of the football team. However, it does not stop there. A felony conviction can follow Mr. Rickerson for the rest of his life. It can result in him being removed from the university. Additionally, it will have an affect on his job opportunities, ability to obtain government student loans, and obtain any type of professional degree. 

If you find yourself in a similar situation as Mr.
Rickerson, it is important to hire a Jacksonville Criminal Defense Attorney as soon as possible. A
