Florida's Cody Larson reinstated
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida forward Cody Larson has been reinstated just days after settling his probation violation case.
Gators coach Billy Donovan said Monday night that Larson is back with the team and eligible to play this season.
A judge in Sioux Falls, S.D., gave Larson two additional years of probation Friday and reinstated his 120-day suspended sentence. The punishment came after Larson reached a plea deal last month on a misdemeanor trespass charge stemming from an incident in April. He was arrested and charged with trying to break into a car in St. Augustine. Donovan suspended Larson immediately.
In 2010, he received a suspended sentence and probation in South Dakota on a misdemeanor drug charge for allegedly sharing prescription medication with a high school teammate.
