Report: Nebraska WR Stanley Morgan has Florida marijuana charge dropped
Stanley Morgan won’t face marijuana charges after all.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, the Nebraska receiver had his marijuana charge dropped by prosecutors in Florida on July 17. Morgan successfully completed a drug treatment program, which was the reason prosecutors told the World-Herald on Friday that the charges were dropped.
Back in May, Morgan and teammate Antonio Reed were arrested in Port Orange, Fla. for suspicion of marijuana possession.
After police pulled the vehicle over and smelled marijuana in the car, they had their backpacks searched. Both of them had marijuana in them, according to an affidavit.
Despite the fact that they had a felony charge against them for having over 20 grams of marijuana, the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor and the paraphernalia charge was dropped altogether.
Reed is still awaiting his hearings, which won’t be until August. He could follow the same path as Morgan because he’s eligible for the drug treatment program, as well.
Morgan is expected to be one of Nebraska’s top receivers in 2017. He had 58 catches for 757 yards and five touchdowns in the last two years, which is more than any returning Husker wideout.
