Mo Alie-Cox Appears in Court, Trial Date Set

Virginia Commonwealth forward Mo Alie-Cox appeared in court and had his trial date set for June 15. Dean Hoffmeyer of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported the development.

Alie-Cox has been charged with misdemeanor assault, stemming from an incident back in April.

A woman alleges that the 6-foot-6, 250 pound forward punched her in the face during an altercation at a club in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom neighborhood. After appearing in court, Alie-Cox and his legal team declined comment.

Wearing a suit and tie, Alie-Cox walked out of the courtroom this morning after the trial date had been set and looked back at a group of reporters, who were trailing him out of the courtroom. A man who appeared to be representing Alie-Cox looked at the reporters, and then firmly at Alie-Cox as he waived his hand across his throat, seemingly suggesting Alie-Cox remain silent. Representatives for Alie-Cox then pulled him aside until reporters left the courthouse.

A rising junior, Alie-Cox averaged 7.4 points and 5.7 points per game, plus an astounding 1.9 blocks while shooting 59.4 percent from the field.

VCU went 26-10 (12-6 A-10) en route to winning the Atlantic 10 Conference title before losing to Ohio State in the NCAA Tournament Round of 64.
