Steelers | Police and courts: S. Paxson
Pete Bosak, of the Centre Daily Times, reports Centre County Assistant District Attorney Lance Marshall filed a motion Tuesday, May 16, seeking an out-of-county jury or delay in the trial of Pittsburgh Steelers DL Scott Paxson because of what he called biased media coverage. Marshall also said Paxson's attorney, Joseph Amendola, and the player's agent, Chuck Abel, made statements in the press that will prevent Marshall from finding an impartial jury to try Paxson on aggravated indecent assault and indecent assault charges. Paxson is accused of indecently assaulting a Penn State student in his apartment. If Paxson is on trial during the beginning of the NFL season, the Steelers might release him. Judge Bradley P. Lunsford must rule on the motion prior to jury selection for Paxson's trial in June.
