Josh Brent will get four more weeks of freedom before finding out whether he’ll have to go to jail until his intoxication manslaughter trial starts.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the latest hearing on whether Brent’s bond will be revoked has been postponed from June 21 to July 19. The delay resulted from the unavailability of a witness from the lab that tested a urine sample Brent provided at (and hopefully not during) his most recent bond-revocation hearing.
Yes, the last time Brent was in court facing jail pending his September 23 trial, he allegedly had a high concentration of marijuana metabolites in his system.
Last December, Brent allegedly was driving a vehicle at a high rate of speed, and with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.189 percent. The car crashed, killing teammate Jerry Brown.
The NFL and the Cowboys have managed to keep Brent away from official team events since the 2012 season ended. He reportedly has been seen, however, at the Cowboys’ facility. It is widely expected that he’ll be suspended for a year or longer if he pleads guilty to or is convicted or any crimes relating to Brown’s death.
