Macd36 Posted February 28, 2006 Share Posted February 28, 2006 Redskins' Safety Adds Two Lawyers As Trial Date Nears By Jason La Canfora Washington Post Staff Writer Tuesday, February 28, 2006; E03 http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/02/27/AR2006022701242_pf.html Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has retained two new attorneys less than a month before he is scheduled to stand trial in Miami on felony assault charges, a crime that could carry a mandatory three-year minimum sentence for each count. Taylor, 22, a starter and key defensive player in two seasons with the Redskins after being drafted fifth overall in 2004, was originally scheduled to go to trial last fall, but the case was continued several times at Taylor's request. Soon after being arrested last June, Taylor switched lawyers and hired Edward Carhart, who has worked the case since, including through several hearings. Last Thursday, Taylor hired Larry Handfield, another South Florida attorney, to represent him, and has also retained the services of attorney Richard Sharpstein, with a March 20 court date looming.
