The wheels of justice may turn slowly, but it appears that in California, someone took justice’s keys.
According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, a pretrial hearing Thursday confirmed that Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch won’t stand trial before a jury until Dec. 27.
We noted last week that the process was moving slowly. But this is for a July DUI arrest. July of 2012.
Lynch pleaded not guilty to two charges stemming from the arrest. Since the league generally waits for legal outcomes before deciding on any possible suspension, Lynch could play two full seasons after the incident.
Dec. 27 is the Friday before the Seahawks’ regular season finale against the Rams.
