Hearing For Patriots’ Dennard Moved To September 6

BOSTON (CBS) – The court hearing for Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has reportedly been moved to September 6 — two days before the team’s season-opener in Buffalo.

The new court date was first reported by Lori Pilger ‏of the Lincoln Journal Star.

Dennard was scheduled to appear in court in Lincoln, Nebraska to determine if his July arrest for suspicion of DUI violated his probation. Dennard was placed on probation and sentenced to 30 days in jail after being convicted of assualting a Lincoln police officer prior to being drafted by the Patriots in 2012.

It was ruled that Dennard did not have to serve his jail time until March, after the season, but that could change depending on what happens on September 6. There remains a chance the judge could order him to serve his jail time immediately, which would take him out of the first five games of the regular season — should the Patriots hold on to the second-year defensive back.

There also remains the possibility that the court date is moved once again, and Dennard may not miss any time.

Dennard draft stock fell in 2012 following his arrest, and the Patriots selected him in the seventh round. He played in 10 games as a rookie last season, tallying 35 tackles, a forced fumble and three interceptions.
