Peggy Wright, of the Daily Record, reports former New York Giants DL Keith Hamilton admitted he used excessive corporal punishment on his 12-year-old son in February by beating the boy with an electrical cord because he got a poor report card at his private school.

Giants | Hamilton Mulling Retirement

Wed, 10 Dec 2003 06:18:13 -0800

The Associated Press reports New York Giants DT Keith Hamilton is considering retiring after this season. If head coach Jim Fassel is fired, Hamilton isn't sure he will fit into the new coach's plan. "I've always said I didn't want anybody running me out of town, talking about his skills are diminishing or he can't do what he used to do,'' Hamilton said. "That's not the way I want to go out. I wasn't foolish with my money. I saved my money for when that time came when I could not do some of the things I'm accustomed to being able to do, so I could say goodbye.'' Hamilton said he won't discuss his future until the last week of the season.

Updating previous reports, Margaret McHugh, of the Star-Ledger, reports New York Giants DT Keith Hamilton rejected a plea bargain on Thursday, Nov. 6, for the charges of cocaine possession he faces.

Hamilton was indicted on Thursday, Nov. 6, but the case probably won't start for several months. When asked if he rejected the plea to make sure no verdict would be made until after the season, Hamilton said : "Those are (other people's) opinions. They're entitled to their feelings."

Giants | Hamilton Court Date Set For Mid-September

Wed, 03 Sep 2003 14:18:14 -0700

The Associated Press reports New York Giants DT Keith Hamilton, who was arrested May 22 on a variety of drug charges, had his case adjourned Tuesday, Sept. 2 at Morris (N.J.) County Court House. The new court date is Sept. 15. Hamilton has been offered a plea bargain if he pleads guilty to possession of cocaine, but that could lead to at least a four-game suspension by the NFL because he is a second-time offender. In November 1998, Hamilton was charged with possession of cocaine. It is believed Hamilton's legal representation will not accept the plea bargain and instead will attempt to delay any legal proceedings until Hamilton can get through this season.
