Florida Gators' Leon Orr receives deferred prosecution for marijuana-related charges



Florida defensive tackle Leon Orr has settled his legal issues stemming from an arrest on marijuana-related charges earlier this month.

According to Alachua County Court records, Orr, who has no prior criminal record, agreed to deferred prosecution in the case. As part of the agreement, Orr will pay $50 for the cost of prosecution of the case and either a $150 fine or 12 1/2 hours of community service.

According to the University Police Department, UPD officers discovered marijuana in Orr's dorm room, along with a glass pipe and rolling papers on Jan. 10. Orr was given a notice to appear for possession of marijuana under 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanor charges.

Orr, a former Gulf standout, is a redshirt freshman who played in all 13 games this past season, registering 10 tackles.
