Alvin Kamara battery case continued until 2023

A court hearing in Saints running back Alvin Kamara‘s battery case in Las Vegas has been delayed again and it is now scheduled for 2023.

Kamara was arrested after the Pro Bowl in Las Vegas and faces a misdemeanor charge of conspiracy to commit battery and a felony charge of battery resulting in substantial bodily harm as a result of allegedly beating a man. Three others, including Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons, also face charges as a result of the incident.

A status conference involving attorneys was scheduled for Tuesday, but a judge pushed the conference back to January 23, 2023. A hearing in the case has been set for March 1.

The timing makes it highly unlikely that there will be any league discipline handed down before the end of the 2022 NFL season. The league said recently that a new video of the incident will not influence the league’s timeline for issuing discipline.

In addition to the criminal case, Kamara also faces a civil lawsuit related to the alleged battery.

  1. Wouldnt want the young man to be put out during the season of course. Why is he not in jail right now?

  2. As a Saints fan, I’d prefer they just get this over with and take our medicine.

    This team is going nowhere in 2022 and don’t need this distraction next season.

  3. Settle the civil case and the criminal case will lose steam. It’s still up to the discretion of the prosecutor whether to bring the case or not, but if the victim/star witness has been financially compensated for his injuries, he’s less likely to care about criminal prosecution of Kamara (and would likely be less vigorously participating in the process from a testimony standpoint). In many cases if the victim doesn’t care about prosecution of the perpetrator, the prosecutor, who answers to the public, no longer has a pressing need to prosecute the case.

    Obviously not a slam dunk conviction or the prosecution would have it over and done long ago.

    Yeah, people with milions never delay and delay, hiding behind lawyers. That never happens.

    Maybe it Goodell was a normal human, the obvious need for a suspension based on the tape alone would induce Kamara to get into a court to face the music.
