No surprise here, Johnny Jolly's trial delayed

Death and taxes were the two sure things in life. With confidence, we can now add a third absolute: Delays in the felony drug trial of Johnny Jolly.

It comes as a surprise to absolutely no one that the case for the Green Bay Packers defensive end, set to begin this morning in Harris County, Texas, has been pushed back. Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tweets that the case has been re-re-re-re-re scheduled for Monday, which apparently means it has a “real chance” of being heard.

We’ll believe when we hear it that Jolly’s case has actually moved forward. Jolly is to stand trial for allegedly possessing enough codeine to land him behind bars for up to 20 years if he’s found guilty. The trial was expected to start Tuesday and then was pushed back to today. Now, perhaps it will kick off on Monday. Then again, maybe some time in 2010 will mark the start of the trial. Jolly was arrested nearly two years ago.
