EvoSkins Posted June 22, 2005 Share Posted June 22, 2005 Redskins' Taylor Gives Statement to State Attorney http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/06/21/AR2005062101469_pf.html Post Wednesday, June 22, 2005; E02 Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor yesterday gave a voluntary statement through an interview with the Miami-Dade state attorney's office, accompanied by his attorney, Edward Carhart . Taylor gave the statement in hopes that prosecutor Mike Grieco will drop two felony charges of assault with a firearm and a misdemeanor count of simple battery before Friday's scheduled arraignment, Carhart said. Grieco, who asked Taylor questions during the unrecorded one-hour session, is overseeing the pre-filing conference during which prosecutors gather information before deciding whether there is sufficient evidence to pursue their case. Ed Griffith , a spokesman for Grieco, said Taylor's arraignment Friday at the Richard E. Gerstein Justice Building in Miami would take only a few minutes. Carhart and Taylor aren't expected at the arraignment; Carhart said this week he would file a written not-guilty plea on behalf of Taylor. Carhart wouldn't disclose the specifics of yesterday's interview session, but said that Taylor told prosecutors he didn't have a gun during the June 1 incident, as police have charged. -- Nunyo Demasio Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
