Before quarterback Dak Prescott was selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the draft, he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence in March.
The arrest in Starkville, Mississippi may have affected Prescott’s landing spot in the draft, but he won’t have the charges hanging over his head at Cowboys camp this summer. Prescott was found not guilty of DUI and speeding in Starkville, where he attended Mississippi State, on Wednesday.
“Dak is obviously extremely relieved this process is over,” Prescott’s lawyer Jay Perry said, via the Jackson Clarion-Ledger. “He’s looking forward to going back to Dallas and then to California to compete in camp and learn from Tony Romo.”
In addition to Romo, Prescott is joined by Kellen Moore and Jameill Showers on the depth chart at quarterback in Dallas. Moore is expected to be Romo’s backup barring an outside addition or a summer showing from Prescott that elevates him more rapidly than expected.
