Talib’s Case Continues with No Resolution or Trial Date

Aqib Talib’s attorney Frank Perez met with prosecutors Thursday and another announcement hearing is set for June 30th.

Talib was indicted for assault with a deadly weapon for his role in a shooting in Garland, Texas March 21. The case has not been set for trial.

“We are still discussing the case,” Perez said in a text to Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times Thursday.

The second degree felony carries as maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Then there is the possibility of punishment from the NFL. Talib was suspended for one game last season for assaulting a cab driver in 2009. Commissioner Roger Goodell has said players who violate the personal conduct policy during the work stoppage will be subject to discipline once the work stoppage ends but players are asking that no discipline be given to those who violated the personal conduct policy during the lockout.
