Chris Rainey's Lawyer Thinks He'll Escape Felony Charges

Huntley Johnson, a Gainesville attorney who knows from getting Gators out of jail, thinks Chris Rainey could escape those pesky stalking charges without a felony rap.

“It doesn’t fit the elements of the crime,” Johnson said. “This kid was never going to hurt her. She knew he wasn’t going to hurt her. The fact that he misspoke in the text is not something to crucify this kid for.”

I feel you there, Huntley. I can't tell you how many times I've tripped over something and hit enough keys on my phone on the way down to text death threats to my nearest and dearest.

“He’s devastated,” Johnson said. “He cared and cares tremendously for this woman."

Look, we like Chris Rainey as much as we can. The kid is press conference gold. But there's sticking up for your client, and then there's ... whatever this is. When we hear about him "caring" about women from now on, all we're going to hear is the voice of that creepy sociopath from the Kay Jewelers ads.
