Huntley Johnson "cautiously optimistic" about Jessamen Dunker's grand theft auto case

Jessamen Dunker's case of grand theft scooter has remained relatively quiet since Dunker's suspension from the Florida football team was announced, and that's probably a good thing. It means Dunker hasn't done anything else to run afoul of the law or of Will Muschamp, and it means that Dunker's future is probably still in orange and blue.

And Dunker's lawyer is feeling good, too. Robbie Andreu of The Gainesville Sun, while reporting on Loucheiz Purifoy's marijuana possession charge being dismissed, also gets this quote from Huntley Johnson, who represents both players.

"I’m cautiously optimistic," Johnson said.

Johnson being optimistic, cautiously or otherwise, is probably a good sign: He doesn't seem to get surprised by his clients' legal proceedings very often, and he knows Alachua County and Florida courts like the back of his hand at this point.

Johnson's defense might hinge on the fact that Dunker reportedly told police he purchased the scooter while being arrested for its theft.
