A UF student was arrested by UPD and charged with sexual battery of a victim between 12 and 18 years old July 8. 

The suspect, Parker Siegel, a 19-year-old UF computer science student, allegedly held the victim down and raped her inside his room in Mallory Hall at 2:30 p.m. July 8. The victim did not give Siegel consent and repeatedly told him “no” and “I have to go,” according to a police report. 

The report did not include the victim’s age.

UPD arrested Siegel around 8:48 p.m. later that evening.

Siegel was released from the Alachua County Jail on a $100,000 bond July 9, a jail official said. 

UPD issued a trespass warning barring Siegel from UF’s campus, said Florida Bridgewater-Alford, UF’s associate director of learning, development and integration, in a written statement. 

“The University of Florida takes all allegations of sexual assault very seriously, and we are committed to providing an environment where students, faculty and staff are safe from all types of sexual misconduct,” Bridgewater-Alford said. 

It is uncertain at this time when Siegel will have his next court hearing or begin his trial.
