The domestic violence charge against Ole Miss freshman DE Charles Wiley has been dismissed, according to The Clarion-Ledger’s Antonio Morales.
Wiley’s lawyer, Steve Farese, said both parties mutually agreed on the dismissal of the misdemeanor domestic violence charge and to “handle this matter privately.”
Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze said this week that Wiley would not play until his legal issues were settled. He has not made an official announcement about his status going forward, but Morales reported that Wiley would now be eligible to play.
Wiley and a 21-year-old woman were both arrested July 25 on charges of misdemeanor domestic violence.
Wiley, from Stockbridge, Ga., enrolled at Ole Miss in January. He participated in spring practice and has been practicing with the team this fall. He was rated as a 4-star recruit in the 247Sports Composite rankings. He was part of the Rebels’ 2016 recruiting class that ranked No. 6 in the country and No 3 in the SEC, according to 247Sports.
