Jacksonville Police were first contacted to investigate Smith back in November when they received “information regarding a case of unlawful sexual activity with certain minors.”

The 29-year-old Georgia native turned himself into Duval County Jail without incident while SWAT and CSI continued to search the former football player’s home.


Smith, a fifth-round pick out of Florida State in 2014, quickly rose to prominence with the Jaguars, earning a Pro Bowl nomination in 2017 and was named second-team All-Pro as well. Jacksonville immediately signed him to a long-term deal that season, handing him a four-year, $45 million extension in October.

Smith’s bail at DCJ has been at at $50,003.
