Who Is Travis Rudolph and Why Was He on Trial?
Travis Rudolph is a former standout wide-receiver at Florida State University who had shorts stints in the NFL with the New York Giants (2017) and Miami Dolphins (2018). In April of 2021, Rudolph was charged with first-degree murder in Lake Park, Fla. in connection to the killing of Sebastien Jean-Jacques. The shooting incident occured after Rudolph and his then-girlfriend Dominique Jones got into an argument and the former wideout was later confronted at his home by four men. Rudolph fired nearly 40 shots in the direction of the men's vehicle, shooting and killing Jean-Jacques and injuring another person.
After hearing two weeks of testimony, the jury found Rudolph not guilty on all charges in under four hours of deliberation.
