Florida WR Antonio Callaway found not responsible in sex assault case

Friday August 12th, 2016

Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway has been found not responsible following a Title IX sexual assault investigation conducted by the school, reports Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times.

Callaway was accused of sexual assault in January and was banned from campus until June. Callaway faced a hearing in front of the school last week—a hearing that was boycotted by his accuser when a Florida booster was chosen as the hearing officer.

Callaway was found not responsible of three conduct violations, reports ESPN’s Mark Shlabach. His accuser was ruled not too intoxicated to not consent.

Callaway has not faced any criminal charges as a result of the accusation. He will be able to return to the team in the fall.

In addition to Callaway, former Gators quarterback Treon Harris was accused of attempted sexual assault in January. Harris transferred from the school as part of the plea agreement in his case.

Callaway led the Gators in all-purpose yards last season. He set Florida’s freshman record with 678 receiving yards.
