University of Memphis basketball players Jeff Robinson and Shawn Taggart are due back in Shelby County Court on Nov. 6 after their cases stemming from a Sept. 2 incident outside a Beale Street nightclub were delayed again Thursday.
Taggart, a sophomore from Richmond, Va., faces misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and inciting a riot. Robinson, a freshman from Columbus, N.J., faces the same charges plus misdemeanor assault. Both players have pleaded not guilty.
Blake Ballin, who was representing Robinson and Taggart on Thursday in place of their attorney Leslie Ballin, said he was disappointed that prosecutors have not dropped the charges.
“Between now and (Nov. 6), we’ll be working diligently to that result,” Blake Ballin said. “We feel that’s just based on the facts involved and the limited involvement of these two in any of the disorder that took place.”
whatever the charges may be why don't people just let it go and give them another chance. Everyone make mistake and this is not even a big thing why keep on draging it longer instead of drop the charge. If this charges keep on going and going this will ruin the basketball reputation and making them look bad. this will also keep the game more delayed.
