NC State issues no trespass letter to Eric Leak
Posted October 23, 2013
North Carolina State University Police have issued a "no trespass" letter to former NC State football player Eric Leak and his wife, Emily, that prohibits them from stepping onto school property, the university said Wednesday.
The letter comes after the university learned that Emily Leak's automobile had been ticketed twice on campus during the spring of 2013.
The North Carolina State athletics program banned Eric Leak and any business associates from campus in November 2011 after it was determined he provided impermissible benefits to a current and former student athlete.
NC State learned during an NCAA interview that Leak provided former basketball player CJ Leslie and a relative with benefits totaling $410. At the time, Leak also admitted providing $1,349 in impermissible benefits to another former basketball player, Tracy Smith.
"Through the disassociation, the referral to the Secretary of State, and the trespass letter, NC State has actively distanced NC State Athletics and student athletes from Eric and Emily Leak," the university said in a statement Wednesday. "The ongoing investigation is being managed by the Secretary of State, and the university therefore cannot provide additional details at this time."
Leak was banned from purchasing season tickets for any sports and from leasing football or basketball suites. He is not allowed to have any contact with any current or future student athlete or any employee of the athletic department.
In September 2012, the university confirmed Leak made contact with former football player David Amerson in June 2011. The contact was not ruled an NCAA violation, but was a violation of the terms of Leak’s disassociation from the program.
“Eric Leak was notified by NC State that he is not to have contact with our current and future student-athletes in all sports for any purpose during the period of disassociation,” NC State officials said in a statement. “This ban extends to all forms of in-person contact and all known or future methods of communication. It appears that Eric Leak is in violation of this letter."
The terms of Leak's disassociation last 10 years. However, there is no outlined punishment for violating the terms of the agreement.
A wide receiver for the Wolfpack, Leak played from 1997-00.
