Hold my beer.
Alice's Restaurant comes to mind...
We’ve been a few near-felons short of a CCG for a long time. You’re crazy if you don’t see this as progress on the recruiting front.
Do the coaches still have have a locked filing cabinet for handguns?
No felony convictions. Charges are not convictions. He had a bench warrant out for missing out on traffic court. Was put on probation and I imagine the charges were reduced to misdemeanors across the board. We will find out when the actual court filings are available but on the scale of criminal activity...this ranks right at the bottom.
This has got to be the most clear cut version of "guilty until proven innocent" I've seen in a while...
Do you know anything about how the legal system works? You can recieve probation on ANY charge. Not just felonies. In most cases where a bench warrant is issued. The warrant is issued as a felony. However, once you appear. Especially if you appear without being brought in by police. That is either dismissed all together, or reduced to a misdemeanor. The felony charge is issued to force you to appear. The probation could have been issued for a misdemeanor of driving without a license. Meaning no fine or jail time is issued unless you do it again within a certain period. It may even lead to it being almost entirely being dropped from your record. It is called deferred adjudication probation.
Actually, in the world of crime, failure to appear for a traffic violation, is about as minor an issue as I can imagine. No domestic violence, no assault, no drug charges, no indecent exposure, no theft, murder or mayhem.
Getting a traffic ticket might be a big deal in Hildreth, but it’s not terribly exciting in the rest of the world.
I got probation when I was a minor for spray painting a cow like a race car. True story.
This kid is not as hard as me!
Believe me, I hope this kid makes it here and plays. But we could be underestimating how serious his legal issues are. We don't know why his license was suspended. I am all for second chances but hopefully he hasn't used up his chances.
post self deleted.
We may not know but neither do you. Here's the thing. The more serious the charge the more chance the details make the news in one form or another. Since no details other than failure to appear have come out. The most likely scenario is that it is minor. The Atlanta media has no incentive to cover it up once he left GaTech. So if it was serious we would probably know.
I guess I chose the correct thread to begin with in this new year as this one has not disappointed...except that there has been no mention of The Parent Trap. A thread titled "Mills" should have had something about The Parent Trap.
At this point, as long as Frost, Held, Walters, and Co. are aware of this situation/why his license was suspended and they are still going to accept his signed LOI, then welcome to the Husker family.
Thank you I was about to post something similar. Although I already said if Coach excepted his LOI that was fine by me.
Yup only they know all the facts and at this time that's the way it should be. If they choose to share it so be it if not so be it too. At this point in time if they take the LOI I have no intetest in knowing anything else.
My personal opinion is folks need to let it be. It will play out one way or another.
Pretty much...and I would be surprised if anything would be shared by the staff other than something along the lines of "We're excited to have Dedrick be a part of this class. Like everyone else, he knows what our expectations are and we're looking forward to working with him."
That was cow-ardly. On a seriuos note did the cow move faster after the paint job.
