Get the tea we’re spilling on Texas A&M wide receiver, Kirk Merritt…
The incidents occurred last fall and involve A&M tutors, however, Kirk Merritt pleaded NOT guilty to two charges of indecent exposure.
Fast forward to now, Merritt requested a delay of arraignment, which was originally scheduled earlier this week at the Brazos County Courthouse.
The Houston Chronicle reports:
In one count, an alleged victim accused Merritt of exposing and touching himself “while sitting in arm’s reach” of her “on or about” Oct. 24. About a day later according to a court document, another alleged victim claimed Merritt pulled down his shorts and held himself also “while sitting in arm’s reach” of her. The document describes both alleged victims as “offended or alarmed by the act of exposure.”
Merritt’s defense cited both incidents as a “bad case of jock itch.” Really? It appears that there was more happening between his legs than a “bad case of jock itch.”
Merritt’s attorney Rick Davis wrote:
“Kirk Merritt has been charged with Indecent Exposure under Section 21.08 of the Texas Penal Code because of two incidents during tutoring sessions that happened on two consecutive days. While Kirk is very embarrassed about this situation, and has apologized to the two tutors that he offended, he did not intend to gratify anyone by exposing himself.”
“The fact is that Kirk had a bad case of jock itch. The statute Kirk has been accused of violating requires that the Defendant have an intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person and that the Defendant is reckless about whether another may be present who will be offended or alarmed by his conduct.”
“We think that Kirk’s conduct falls squarely under the Disorderly Conduct statute … That statute requires only that a Defendant is reckless about whether another may be present who will be offended or alarmed by his act.”
Courthouse records show Merritt pleaded not guilty on March 27, according to a courthouse clerk, and Davis said a new hearing date has yet to be set.
Who doesn’t like a good helping of sausage and meatballs on their pasta?
Kirk Merritt is another highly sought recruit for the NFL Draft that has now put his status is question. Should he get a chance at the NFL? Why can’t he get a girl like normal twenty year old guys?
