Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois was charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession on Thursday night, and on Friday he entered a pretrial diversion program, according to a report from Karl Etters of the Tallahassee Democrat.
Francois was not arrested and not given a notice to appear, according to a police spokesman. However, few additional details were provided and it’s unclear what will be required of Francois to fulfill his obligations within the diversion program.
Tallahassee Police now consider the case closed, and coach Willie Taggart indicated on Thursday that Florida State would be handling the matter internally.
Francois has been doing limited work at quarterback this spring while recovering from a knee injury he suffered early in the 2017 season against Alabama. He would not have been able to participate in the spring game on Saturday regardless of the charges on Thursday.
