The Gainesville Police Department claims that on Wednesday it carried out a search warrant at Jalen Kitna’s Florida home following a tip that a Discord user had shared “an image of child sexual assault material” via the social media messaging service.
According to police, an investigation showed that Kitna was the owner of the account and that two other images had actually been distributed from it. Without any further ado, let us find out all the details related to the matter in the article below.

Police claim Kitna told them he “remembered distributing the two photographs but believed they were ‘legal,’ since he discovered them online,” when they spoke with him at the house. Police said Kitna told them he knew he shouldn’t have released the images. The Florida Gators football player was found to be in possession of three more photographs of child sexual assault, according to police, who allege Kitna’s electronic devices were taken as part of the search warrant.
A short while later, they detained him and booked him on five counts, including two counts of distributing child exploitation material and three counts of possessing child pornography.

The statement states, “We are startled and saddened to hear of the news surrounding Jalen Kitna. These are extremely serious allegations, and neither the University of Florida nor the UAA will tolerate such conduct.
Who Is Jalen Kitna?
Jalen Kitna was arrested on five different counts, including three counts of possessing child pornography and two counts of distributing child exploitation material. Jalen Kitna, the quarterback for the Florida Gators and the son of former NFL player Jon Kitna, was detained on Wednesday in Florida, according to TMZ Sports.
At roughly 3:20 PM ET, the 19-year-old was just processed for booking into jail. His arrest’s circumstances were not immediately made public in full. Jalen, a highly anticipated recruit out of Texas’ Burleson High School, gave the Gators his 2020 commitment. He was a 2021 team member who redshirted. In October versus Eastern Washington, he made his season debut and participated in his first on-field action.
His greatest effort came against EWU when he threw for 152 yards and a score. He has played in four games for UF overall. In the event that Anthony Richardson, a highly anticipated NFL draught prospect, decides against playing in the postseason game, it had been suggested that he might start the team’s bowl game later this year.
