There is also this:
Forgive me if it's been posted. I checked back to this morning and did not see anything.

Holmes' Domestic Trial Continued

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Former Ohio State player and NFL draft pick Santonio Holmes appeared in court on Wednesday to answer to domestic violence charges.


Holmes, 22, also has pleaded not guilty to domestic violence and assault charges involving the mother of his daughter, NBC 4's David Wayne reported.

Defense attorneys asked a judge to grant a continuance for Holmes' trial. Attorneys claimed that they are trying to work out a resolution with prosecutors.


When asked if a plea bargain was being considered, Holmes' attorney Bill Meeks said, 'No. This case will be driven like all other cases -- with the facts.'


Holmes' child's mother, Lashae Boone, called police saying that Holmes choked her and slammed her against a door, causing bruises.


Holmes, the Steelers' first-round pick in the April NFL draft out of Ohio State signed a five-year, $8 million contract with the team. He has since been enrolled in an NFL anger management program, but prosecutors said they don't know enough about the program to know if it will be an acceptable part of a resolution.


'Unfortunately, they were not able to provide sufficient information. We did have some discussions this morning, but again, before we're willing to resolve the case, we really need to know exactly what he will be doing,' said Chief city prosecutor Stephen McIntosh.


Holmes, a native of Belle Glade, Fla., led Ohio State in receiving last year with 53 catches for 977 yards and 11 touchdowns. He decided to skip his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the NFL draft.


His trial is set to begin on Dec. 4.

Since no one but the woman and he know what really happened and they are trying to work things out, maybe a good counciling program would be a good choice here. This time period will be a good opportunity to see if he does follow thru on making better choices for his life.

If the case continues down this path, he will give him a clean slate. With a clean slate, he has a chance to wipe out these memories of disrespect to law officers and to women. He can then focus his on those things required of him on the field and in the Steelers organization!

I was hoping everything would get done and over with by now. Now we have to wait a few more months for this thing to end. Either way at least we have football now to take our minds off of it.
