Johnny Jolly's trial postponed again

Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly is still awaiting trial, nearly two years after he was arrested in Houston and charged with possession of at least 200 milligrams of codeine. He’s going to wait a little longer.

The Harris County District Court hearing the case postponed Jolly’s trial until Tuesday because of a scheduling conflict with three other cases, the Green Bay Press Gazette reports.

Jolly was arrested on July 8, 2008. He could be sentenced to as much as 20 years in prison if convicted. Jolly is free on bond, and last week the judge tightened the restrictions on him after prosecutors suggested he had violated the conditions of his bond.

Jolly is a restricted free agent who has not signed his tender offer.

    You see Packer fans. Get off the Williams Wall Nuts…Johnny Jolly is a true criminal and its no wonder to the NFL loving fans that he came from the Green Bay Packers. I too would want to be high 24/7 if I had to live in GB.

    Contra,
    Jolly hasen’t been convicted of a crime. He hasen’t has his day in court yet. How can you call him a “true crimianl?” Unless you perscribe to the notion of guilty until proven innocent. The Williams wall got caught with a banned substance in their body. No innosence there. Had they played in any state other than minnestota their asses would have been suspended years ago.

    At least Jolly will be prepared for the prison life. Being that numerous homosexual relationships were born in the tight knit Packer locker room….

  9. EasyDrinkingBuschLight says: May 27, 2010 2:01 PM

    200 mg is probably more like 20-40 pills depending on the strength.

    Situations the Green Bay Packers HOPE will occur so they dont have to face the Vikings and experience more losses…
    (1) Vikings moving to LA
    (2) Williams Wall suspension
    (3) Brett Favre not coming back
    Ouch guys, none of your wishes seem to be coming true :(
    Get ready for another season in the Vikings shadow.

    Jolly’s a true criminal because he’s never been to trial and the Williamses didn’t do anything wrong even though they tested positive for a banned substance.

    Due process means he gets his day in court, I would save labeling him a criminal until they can first get a conviction.
    The Williams were busted in an authorized protocol of drug testing, no ifs, and or buts. Except for the state court judge who doesn’t like to see the Vikings actually have to live up to the consequences but the delays have only hurt the Vikings in the karma department.

    Question for the resident lawyer..
    Hear rumblings that in the same stop that nabbed Jolly, there was another passenger that got picked up on a gun charge.. basically possession.
    That charge got kicked by the judge because of the legitimacy of the stop, from what I hear.
    My question.. how can they carry this trial forward when another charge from the same stop gets kicked because of the stop itself?
    Also.. can you confirm any of the above via your relationships in the legal community?
    That said.. I still hope the NFL hands down a 4 game rip at the minimum.. maybe wake up this giant.
    Thanks.

  23. tufar says: May 27, 2010 3:19 PM

    Gregjennings and other Packer apologists, think about this for a while…You can try playing the innocent until guilty card on Jolly, but don’t try comparing his situation to that of the Williams guys. Jolly’s charge is criminal in nature while the Williams ran afoul of the NFL. If the William’s lose their appeal there will be a league sanction, Jolly might find himself in deeper shat than that.

    which is still 1 bottle of Codeine Cough Syrup (without a Prescription) …as for comparing Jolly to the Williams sisters…
    I’m sure Jolly called the 1800 NFL hotline and asked if Codeine Cough Syrup (without a Prescription) was on the banned substance list… heard the reply of “there is no banned substance list” — quickly hung up and shouted “Party On Dudes!!!!”

  26. Ruvell100 says: May 27, 2010 3:34 PM

    Contra’s barbs carry no water. Criminal Packers? How many can you name, and how many implicated Vikings can we name in the last 10 years? Typical Minnesota. Short memory (a good thing, since tragedy and patheticism follow everything that state does) and a penchant for being all flash and no cash. You couldn’t put your money where your mouth (or fingers) is on any topic.
    Tell me again how you’re retiring at 34. Everyone believes it.

  27. Bob Nelson says: May 27, 2010 3:38 PM

    Texas has some strange laws when codeine is available many places over the counter. Most notably in cough syrup.
    Charges were already dismissed previously in this matter. The guy was one of four occupants of vehicle where codiene was found.
    None of the 3 has accepted a plea deal to testify against the others is an indication the case very weak.
    Since the NFL obviously does not ban codeine as a substance, this really is not news. He did not have codeine in his system.
    In no way is this comparable to the multiple suspensions of vikings defensive players Edwards and Henderson for steroid abuse, the upcoming suspensions of the Williams DT’s for steroid masking, and Jared Allen’s substance abuse suspension.

  31. TheBaySay says: May 27, 2010 4:00 PM

    Jolly’s day of facing the music, if there is any to be faced, is always being moved back by judges, not by his own appeals. On the other hand the Shyster Wall keeps Fat and Kev from getting the suspensions which they should be preparing to serve – or actually should have served long ago. I’m just amazed that the land of 100,000 lawyers hasn’t filed suit trying to get at least one of Mini’s many championship choke jobs overturned in court. It would probably be their best chance ever to be “Champions.”

  32. bluestree says: May 27, 2010 4:24 PM

    One way or another, Jolly’s messing around in Houston is going to cost him what could have been a pro bowl career in Green Bay.
    How much you wanna bet he ends up in Minnesota? Who wants seconds?

    ————————
    I absolutely agree with this. And I hope justice is served. If Jolly’s found guilty, I hope he gets what would be considered a normal sentence from the jury, and I hope the league hits him as well.
    I haven’t seen anyone argue that he’s innocent in this thread. But there’s a pretty big difference between a guy who hasn’t been to trial yet and two guys who were caught red-handed and suspended, appealed the suspension and lost, sued and lost, and are appealing again.
    We know the Williamses had Bumetanide in their systems. We don’t know if Jolly will be found guilty of the possession charge.
    And for the record, I think he’s a turd whether the drugs were his or not. Just to be in that car he’s a turd.

    1)A fat coach with tits
    I think Brian Murphy, Eric Bieniemy, Karl Dunbar, Jim Hueber, Jimmie Johnson, Pat Morris and George Stewart might have something to say about that.
    2) Linebackers with European gay rocker hairdos
    That’s right. You’ve got a DE with a gay rocker hairdo. Actually, he chopped it for wifey. But I’m sure it’ll be back in a few months.
    3) 2nd place yearly in the North
    The Packers have finished 2nd twice. The Vikings have finished 2nd five times. The Packers have won the NFCN twice as many times as the queens. You might want to revise that statement.
    Oh, wait. This is Pervy. Nevermind. I should expect posts completely devoid of facts and worthwhile content.

    I’ll take your word, Chicken. Sounds legit. Although you have to admit that The Love Boat (by the way, Al and Alma’s Charter Service is nicknamed the Perkins on the Lake!) is about as bad as it gets. Both sides have had their share of turds. In the Packers case, they end up in some broads laundry hamper.
    Contra is just a worthless little whore, though. An errant bullet hits Lambeau in an unrelated incident and now they are all criminals….

    @ RC IV,
    Thanks for taking the time to post this info. This should shut up the Packers and their “holier than thou” attitude. What a crazy bunch considering they wear cheese wedges on their heads…CHEESE WEDGES!

  42. jimicos says: May 28, 2010 11:46 PM

    “Holier than thou?” Contra’s the one with the “holier than thou” attitude. Go back and read the posts. Ruvell simply referenced how many Vikings would be on the list.. And as chicken pointed out, Ruvell was right.
    Contra coming back and claiming victory after Chicken proved him wrong is just plain funny. Contra, you’re an idiot. There’s no other way to put it. You’re clearly in Jimmy Smith/Bob Nelson territory.
