Johnny Jolly's trial postponed one more time
The sun came up today and, yes, once again the trial for Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly was delayed.
This time, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, it didn’t have anything to do with Jolly seeking to push things back. A jury trial was to begin today but the Harris County (Texas) District Court hearing the case has three other cases set to begin and one was given priority because a defendant is in jail. Jolly’s case will now begin Tuesday, allegedly.
Jolly is facing felony charges for possession of codeine. He was arrested nearly two years ago now and the wheels of justice have turned awfully slow in his case. Jolly could face 20 years behind bars if convicted.
Last week, the judge in the case came down hard on Jolly and ordered him to undergo drug and alcohol tests. He also put a strict curfew on him. Once the trial concludes, we’ll find out if it is even worth it for Jolly to sign his tender from the Packers as a restricted free agent.
