Jackson enters not guilty plea

Florida defensive back J.C. Jackson entered a written plea of not guilty to three counts of first-degree felony armed robbery.

Attorney Stephen Stanfield represented J.C. Jackson on Thursday. According to the Gainesville Sun, Jackson’s lead attorney is Chris Brown, who is in Naples.

Jackson, a redshirt freshman Florida cornerback from Immokalee, turned himself into police and was arrested early Sunday in connection to an armed robbery that took place late Saturday afternoon.

The arrest was made in connection to an armed robbery where, according to the police report, three men entered a Gainesville apartment Saturday afternoon. The report says Jackson left the apartment after receiving a phone call while two other men held the resident and two of his friends at gunpoint. The two men took $382 and a gaming system.

Jackson was released from jail on $150,000 bond Tuesday.
