RICHMOND, Va. – Three men’s soccer players at Virginia Commonwealth University face felony charges after they allegedly filmed a nude minor without consent, according to WTVR.
Bobby Joe Hopper, Finnlay Wyatt and Donovan Arias, all freshmen, are each charged with a felony in connection with an incident that happened at a VCU dorm on Nov. 2.
Arias’ attorney John Luxton said that the charges were for a situation that seemed to be for a “prank.” He said that if someone was filmed, the players did not know the victim was underage.
The three men were indicted by a grand jury on Feb. 3.
The three players have been suspended, VCU confirmed to WTVR. Their names are still on the VCU website for the 2013-2014 season roster.
VCU is pursuing internal investigations.
