Snell reported that Patricia and his friend, Greg Dietrich, were indicted on one count of aggravated sexual assault in relation to allegations stemming from an encounter during spring break in South Padre Island, Texas. Patricia was a student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute at the time.

Baalke is gone, but the 49ers haven’t stopped taking players in that position. They made former North Carolina State defensive end Kentavius Street the 128th overall pick of the draft despite a torn ACL that he suffered during a pre-draft workout for the Giants.
