Florida forward Cody Larson settles legal case with deferred prosecution



Florida sophomore forward Cody Larson's legal troubles stemming from his arrest this past spring for burglary have ended with a deferred prosecution agreement.

Larson's original charge was eventually reduced from felony burglary to misdemeanor criminal trespass, stemming from an incident on April 10 when he and teammate Erik Murphy allegedly attempted to break into a car around 2 a.m. near a bar in St. Augustine.

Among the terms of the agreement on Sept. 9, Larson complete 200 hours of community service, write a meaningful letter of apology to the victim and pay $240 in restitution. He must also play $100 to the State Attorney's office for cost of prosecution, and $100 to the St. Augustine Police Department for cost of the investigation.

Larson must also complete a substance abuse evaluation and any treatment if recommended and continue counseling. Larson is also under supervised probation for 12 months.
