Florida’s Jenkins pleads to marijuana charge

GAINESVILLE, Fla. —Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins has accepted a plea deal on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge.

The State Attorney’s Office agreed to withhold adjudication and ordered Jenkins to pay $316 in various court costs and fines Friday.

Jenkins, considered one of the top cornerbacks in the Southeastern Conference, was arrested in a Gainesville nightclub in January. Gainesville Police officers said they spotted Jenkins in a public bathroom rolling a marijuana cigarette. Jenkins was charged with possession of marijuana less than 20 grams. He was released after signing a notice to appear in court.

It was the football program’s first arrest under new coach Will Muschamp, who said he would handle the matter internally.
