Prosecution loading up witnesses for case vs. Haynesworth

The sexual abuse trial for Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been pushed back once again to Aug. 23.

The trial was originally supposed to begin this Monday, but the defense team arranged to have it delayed, and the Washington Post reports it could take four days to complete because of the number of individuals who could be called as witnesses. Per the report, prosecutors could call as many as 10.

Haynesworth is accused of fondling the breast of a waitress at the W Hotel in Washington on Feb. 12. The trial, of course, will be during the heart of the NFL preseason provided a labor deal is struck relatively soon.

“This is his first responsibility and I will expect him to be available on that date,” Judge Patricia Wynn said, per the Post.

Haynesworth rejected a plea in the spring of simple assault. Now, he’ll have all the details aired during the season. Who knows? Maybe by then, Haynesworth will be an ex-Redskin.
