A&M WR Kirk Merritt Whips Penis Out in Front of Tutors; Lawyer Says He Had Bad Jock Itch
This shouldn’t be funny, but it is.
Texas A&M Aggies wide receiver Kirk Merritt has pleaded not guilty to two charges of indecent exposure stemming from an incident that happened last fall.
“In one count, an alleged victim accused Merritt of exposing and touching himself “while sitting in arm’s reach” of her “on or about” Oct. 24. About a day later according to a court document, another alleged victim claimed Merritt pulled down his shorts and held himself also “while sitting in arm’s reach” of her. The document describes both alleged victims as “offended or alarmed by the act of exposure.”
But wait. Merritt’s lawyer has a very simple explanation as to why this happened.
“Kirk Merritt has been charged with Indecent Exposure under Section 21.08 of the Texas Penal Code because of two incidents during tutoring sessions that happened on two consecutive days,” Davis wrote. “While Kirk is very embarrassed about this situation, and has apologized to the two tutors that he offended, he did not intend to gratify anyone by exposing himself.
“The fact is that Kirk had a bad case of jock itch. The statute Kirk has been accused of violating requires that the Defendant have an intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person and that the Defendant is reckless about whether another may be present who will be offended or alarmed by his conduct.
“We think that Kirk’s conduct falls squarely under the Disorderly Conduct statute … That statute requires only that a Defendant is reckless about whether another may be present who will be offended or alarmed by his act.”
A bad case of jock itch that flared up in consecutive days while being tutored. Let’s see how this plays out…
