GAINESVILLE – Florida defensive tackle Leon Orr has accepted deferred prosecution for two misdemeanor marijuana charges he faced this month. The redshirt freshman was charged with misdemeanor possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. After receiving a notice to appear on Jan. 10, Orr had a court date set for Feb. 8. According to Alachua County Court records, Orr agreed to deferred prosecution on Friday. Orr must pay $50 in court costs and either an additional $150 fine or 12.5 hours of community service, according to a report from the Tampa Bay Times.
Orr’s room in the Keys Complex was searched by the University Police Department, with the report stating that the officer found “a bag of green, leafy substance, a glass pipe, and rolling papers.” Tests revealed the contents of the bag were marijuana, and Orr admitted to the officer that the marijuana, pipe and papers were his. Orr’s was the ninth arrest of a Florida player since Will Muschamp was hired a year ago and sixth involving marijuana. All six cases ended with deferred prosecution. Orr has no other criminal offenses in Alachua County. A Florida spokesman said last week that the matter had been dealt with internally.
