Nebraska trial scheduled for Patriots DB Alfonzo Dennard
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska assault trial for New England Patriots rookie Alfonzo Dennard has been scheduled for next month.
The trial has twice been delayed since April 21, when Dennard was arrested outside a bar in Lincoln, where he played cornerback for Nebraska.
Dennard has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of assaulting an officer and to two related misdemeanors.
Online court records say Dennard’s trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 11. That’s eight days after the Super Bowl is played at the Superdome in New Orleans.
The Patriots face the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC championship game on Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
