Penn State Football Player Charged With Indecent Assault

Penn State football player Brent Wilkerson has been charged with indecent assault and harassment stemming from an incident that occurred on February 13. 

Kris Peterson, associate director of football communications at Penn State said, “We are aware of the charges against Mr. Wilkerson. He has been suspended indefinitely from all football and team activities until we have more information. We will not have any additional comment as this is an ongoing legal matter.”

Originally from Clinton, Md., Wilkerson was a junior tight end on the football team. The preliminary hearing in this case will take place on April 6 in State College.

Erin Cassidy Hendrick was an associate producer at WPSU. She produced the programs “BookMark” and “This I Believe” for the station.
