Florida State Receiver Jesus Wilson Charged with Third Degree Grand Theft Auto

By DJ Byrnes on July 10, 2014 at 10:35a

First, quarterback Jameis Winston was pinched for shoplifting shellfish from a Tallahassee Publix. Now, his teammate, Jesus Wilson, is in trouble for a more serious version of shoplifting: grand theft auto.

From TomahawkNation.com:

Florida State sophomore receiver Jesus Wilson was arrested Wednesday on a charge of Grand Theft Auto in the third degree. This, according to the Leon County Sheriff's booking report. No information is provided in the booking report other than the charge, which is a felony.

Under Florida State University policy, any athlete charged with a felony is immediately suspended until the matter has reached a resolution.

This is Wilson's first brush with the law during his time at Florida State of which Tomahawk Nation is aware. Under Florida law, the charge of grand theft auto in the third degree carries a maximum sentence of five yeas in prison, five years probation and up to a $5,000 fine, upon conviction.

They say "go big or go home," but it looks like Jesus went big, but he's still going to have to go home.

Still, let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone.

~~TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State football player Jesus Wilson stole a motor scooter near the Love Building on the Florida State campus last month and crashed it, court documents said.

~~On Monday, Wilson emailed investigators saying he took the scooter when he noticed the keys in the ignition. Wilson said he did not plan to keep the scooter as long as he did. He provided no details as to how he planned to return it, court documents said.

FSU and Tallahassee PD on the case, wouldn't be surprised if Wilson was found innocent and allowed to keep the scooter

I'm sure it was the scooter's fault.

If the scooter didn't want to be taken, why was it wearing a basket and seat cover like that?

I'll go ahead & cast a stone...stealing cars scooters while having a scholarship at one of the nations powerhouse football factories is dumb. Stealing cars scooters in general -- dumb.

I never, ever thought I would utter these words, but Jesus it would seem, is extremely dumb.

If this happened at LSU would his suspension be up for team vote?

Hey.....if the FSU boys can't eat, they sure don't have extra cash for transportation. Any truth to the story that the crash was after a high speed chase with the police at a dangerous 23.5 mph on that scooter?
