A week ago, the school announced that Jake Schickel, a Jacksonville lawyer and school booster, would serve as counsel for the two wide receivers. The accuser in Callaway’s case was not happy that the new lawyer was a football donor — making the women believe she wouldn’t get a fair case.
Harris — who transitioned from quarterback to wide receiver this off-season — he was previously accused of sexual assault in 2014. When the women refused to move forward with the case, the charges were dropped.
Schickel made a four-page ruling, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The evidence, which was presented to him, he said that the woman was the aggressor. Callaway said “he was so stoned I had no interest in having sex with anyone.”
John Clune, the woman’s lawyer, thinks differently.
“It wasn’t exactly a news flash that Mr. Callaway was going to be found not responsible,” he said. “It just seems like this whole situation, ever since we found out they were having a booster hear the case, is a disgrace, and it’s a disservice to everybody who is involved in this process.”
With these charges dropped, Callaway will likely receive no discipline from head coach Jim McElwain. Callaway is expected to be the team’s No. 1 wide out option in 2016.
The woman, according to Clune, may not return to the school in the fall.
