Cowboys DT Josh Brent Has Bond Revocation Hearing Delayed
A bond revocation hearing scheduled for Friday for Dallas Cowboys lineman Joshua Brent has been postponed until July 19th at the request of the Dallas County District Attorney’s office, Selwyn Crawford of the Dallas Morning News reports. First Assistant prosecutor Heath Harris said via email that the delay was because a witness with the lab that tests Brent’s blood was not available Friday and the next date all parties to the case could be available was July 19th.
Harris said the postponement would have no effect on the September 23 scheduled start of Brent’s intoxication manslaughter trial.
The judge also ordered Brent to give a urine sample while he was in court that day. The results of that test apparently showed high concentration of marijuana, prompting prosectors to once again file a motion to revoke Brent’s bond and have him sent to jail until trial.
The motion to revoke states that “the results of the urinalysis indicate that the defendant ingested marijuana within 30 days of the test date and that the findings are not indicative of secondhand exposure.”
