The next court date for Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib will take place on May 18, according to Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times.

That’s when a grand jury in Dallas will hear evidence in the case involving Talib and his mother Okolo Talib.  Aqib Talib was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.   His mother faces the same charge, in addition to felony possession of a firearm.

Aqib Talib is accused by police of grabbing a gun from his mother and shooting it at Shannon Billings, the boyfriend of his sister.  His charge is punishable by 2-20 years in prison if found guilty.

While there has been speculation the Bucs will dump Talib at the end of the legal process, coach Raheem Morris has said no decision has been made.
