WR Dunkley enters pre-trial intervention program
USF sophomore receiver Chris Dunkley, suspended indefinitely from the Bulls after his arrest in September on a domestic violence battery charge, agreed Monday to enter into a domestic violence intervention program for first-time offenders.
Under the agreement, Dunkley will have no contact with the alleged victim, will attend at least 26 weeks of batterer intervention counseling and will complete 12 months of supervision without committing any additional crimes. Upon completion of those requirements, the misdemeanor charge against him will be dropped by prosecutors.
Dunkley, who sat out the 2011 season after transferring from Florida, caught a 52-yard touchdown pass in USF's win against Nevada on Sept. 8, but has been suspended since the arrest, which took place hours after USF's loss to Florida State on Sept. 29. A USF athletics spokesman said Tuesday that Dunkley's status with the team has not changed.
