Complaint against Harris withdrawn; won’t play LSU game

first_imgGAINESVILLE – The sexual assault claim against Florida quarterback Treon Harris has been withdrawn by the UF student who originated the allegations.“The young lady who claimed that Treon Harris sexually battered her has withdrawn her complaint. I am pleased for Treon Harris and his family,” said Gainesville attorney Huntley Johnson, who represented Harris. “I will not speculate on what the University of Florida is going to do.”But Florida coach Will Muschamp announced Harris will not play in Saturday’s game against LSU.“We have been notified that the University and legal process is complete,” Muschamp said in a statement. “Treon has been reinstated to the team, but he will not play Saturday. This has been a learning experience for everyone involved. Treon has been honest with me throughout the process and is looking forward to rejoining his teammates.”Huntley released a graphic statement on Thursday defending Harris and claiming, among other things, that the woman had sex with another man before him that night.

#FemaleFilmmakerFriday: Get to know “The Boy Downstairs” director Sophie Brooks

first_imgJon Pack(NEW YORK) — In honor of #FemaleFilmmakerFriday, meet Sophie Brooks.The writer/director’s first feature film, The Boy Downstairs, opens in New York today and hits select theaters next week. The romantic comedy stars Zosia [ZASHA] Mamet [MAMM-ett] as an aspiring writer who inadvertently moves into the apartment above her ex-boyfriend. Complicatations ensue.In a time when women in film are coming to forefront – like Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins – Brooks is looking to make her own mark. Here’s what you should know about this rising filmmaker:1. The idea for The Boy Downstairs came to her while she was recovering from a car accident and appendicitis…at the same time.2. Like Zosia’s character in the film, Brooks is a writer, who moved to London and worked in a bridal store. However, she’s never lived in the same building as an ex.3. She’s fan of the #FemaleFilmmakerFriday hashtag, which began popping up all over social media last month. “I think [that] until there’s a time when it isn’t necessary to say ‘female’ before ‘filmmaker,’ it’s good to embrace it and to show younger girls, ‘Look, this is a viable option for you. This is a viable job,’” she tells ABC Radio.4. She’s working on two new scripts: one in the same genre as The Boy Downstairs, another a zombie-comedy with two girl best friends as the leads.5. Her advice to aspiring female filmmakers? “Don’t limit yourself, and try things. And believe in yourself.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
