Report: Texas A&M WR Kirk Merritt pleads not guilty to 2 charges of indecent exposure
Texas A&M WR Kirk Merritt is reportedly pleading not guilty to two charges of indecent exposure.
The charges relate to two separate incidents in October, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Brent Zwerneman. On or about Oct. 24, Merritt allegedly exposed himself and touched himself “while sitting in arm’s reach” of a woman. The next day, he allegedly exposed and held his genitals in the presence of another woman.
Citing a source, Zwerneman reported both victims were tutors at Texas A&M.
The sophomore receiver entered his not guilty plea on March 27. He also requested a delay of arraignment. The arraignment hearing had been scheduled for earlier this week. He requested the delay due to an “objection to setting.”
Merritt transferred to Texas A&M from Oregon last summer. He sat out last season due to NCAA transfer rules. He caught five passes for 61 yards as a true freshman in 2015.
