Dalvin Cook’s lawyers unhappy with arraignment date

-

Attorneys for suspended Florida State Seminoles running back Dalvin Cook are “displeased” that the rising sophomore’s arraignment date on charges of misdemeanor battery has been pushed from July 30 to September 2, just three days before FSU opens its season at home against Texas State. ESPN’s Joe Schad reported the development on Twitter.

According to Brendan Sonnone of the Orlando Sentinel, Cook’s arraignment date was pushed back due to another lawyer, Joey McCall, joining the defense team, as was told to Sonnone by the Leon County Clerk of Courts. Cook is also represented by Miami attorney Ricky Patel.

Cook has been accused of punching a woman in the face outside a local Tallahassee bar last month, and just what this means for FSU’s reigning leading rusher remains to be seen. Since he is only charged with a misdemeanor (albeit a VERY serious one), his suspension could end up being lifted as the start of the season draws nearer, or he could stay suspended as FSU doesn’t exactly need him desperately against Texas State.

Cook’s lawyers have maintained that he is innocent but given how much FSU’s reputation is hurting after recently dismissed quarterback De’Andre Johnson was caught on tape punching a woman in the face, not to mention the public outcry that occurred after former quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner and championship winner Jameis Winston was not charged with sexual assault during his time with the school, chances are that Cook will remain suspended until his situation plays out completely.

  1. FSU football is an embarrassment right now. Jimbo fisher has zero control over his program. He needs to be held accountable, as well as the athletes he has recruited. I struggle to call them students, or student athletes, because they are not interested in academics.
    Famous jameis should be in prison for his behavior while at FSU.
    FSU football is everything you dont want your program to become!
