On Wednesday, news came out that Aqib Talib would be appearing in court on Thursday as a result of his ongoing case, although the reason behind the court appearance was still unclear. Well, thanks to the St. Petersburg Times for clearing things up:
The attorney for Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib will be back in a Dallas County courtroom Thursday for an initial discussion with the state about the case.
Talib, who has attended some workouts organized in Tampa by Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman, does not have to attend the hearing.
Attorney Frank Perez called it an ‘initial discussion between me and the state on his case.’’
It could take some time before Talib’s case gets totally finished and figured out, so this looks like just one preliminary meeting out of many, many more to follow. We’ll be updating this Stream with more news as it becomes available, but there’s no knowing how long this could drag on.
