Trial Set For Patriots DB Dennard

Alfonzo Dennard was a first round worthy talent many evaluators felt, but a legal issue just days prior to the NFL Draft caused him to slip to the 7th round. Time has come for Dennard's day in court.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska assault trial for New England Patriots rookie Alfonzo Dennard (DEHN'-urd) has been scheduled for next month.

The trial has twice been delayed since April 21, when Dennard was arrested outside a bar in Lincoln, where he played cornerback for Nebraska.

Dennard has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of assaulting an officer and to two related misdemeanors.

Online court records say Dennard's trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 11. That's eight days after the Super Bowl is played at the Superdome in New Orleans.

The Patriots face the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC championship game on Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
