Former Florida Gators cornerback J.C. Jackson was found not guilty of four first-degree felony charges, according to Cindy Swirko of the Gainesville Sun.
Jackson was kicked off the football team shortly after he was arrested in connection with an April armed robbery case. He was charged with three counts of home invasion with a deadly weapon and one count of burglary of an occupied dwelling, according to a July Orlando Sentinel report.
According to The Sun’s Cindy Swirko, Jackson would like to return to the UF football team now that he has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the case. Even though he was cleared by the court of law, Jackson would have to face Florida’s judicial affairs, according to the Associated Press’ Mark Long.
Before getting kicked off the team, Jackson was expected to be a major contributor in the defensive backfield this season.
