According to The Seattle Times, Marshawn Lynch’s DUI trial will be held on December 27th instead of in November.
At a pretrial hearing today regarding Marshawn Lynch’s DUI arrest last July in Oakland, it was re-affirmed that a motion to suppress evidence will not be held until Nov. 1, and that a jury trial won’t begin until Dec. 27.
Lynch earlier pleaded not guilty to two charges from the arrest, which included driving while having a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher, and driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Lynch was not disciplined by the team for the arrest, and with the current timeline, it’s possible the case will not have a resolution until late into this season, or possibly until after the season. Any NFL discipline wouldn’t happen until after the legal process has run its course.
