Free-agent linebacker Nick Moody didn’t deliberately stiff arm the Florida criminal justice system, after all. Or, if he did, he has had a change of heart.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Moody will be testifying at the trial involving allegations against Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. Moody, despite Friday’s events, is fully cooperating.
Moody contends that Friday’s failure to appear was the result of a miscommunication. He’ll probably need to have some compelling details and supporting facts in order to convince the judge of that.
Regardless, Moody will be in California on May 2, on the witness stand and offering testimony in the case against Smith, Moody’s former teammate in San Francisco.
