GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Prosecutors says they are moving ahead with attempted sexual battery and other charges against a University of Florida resident assistant whose release with no bail sparked outrage.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the State Attorney’s Office in Gainesville said Friday they would move forward with their case against Ian Milaski and recommended setting bail at $300,000.

Milaski was arrested late last month after a woman he knows says he had assaulted her.

Alachua County Circuit Court Judge Mark Moseley released the 21-year-old student with no bail after his attorneys said he was a “high-achieving” student and leader on campus.

Milaski now faces charges of kidnapping, burglary with assault or battery and attempted sexual battery.



He’s currently allowed to continue his coursework but can’t be on campus.
