Redskins safety Sean Taylor pleaded not guilty to felony assault charges to day in Dade County, Florida. According to Taylor's lawyer, the second-year player rejected a plea deal offered by the prosecutors, a deal that would have led to a three-year prison sentence for Taylor.
Judge Mary Barzee did give permission for Taylor to travel out of the state while the case is being prepared for trial. Miami-Dade assistant state attorney Mike Grieco, who is prosecuting the case, had no objection to allowing Taylor to travel, agreeing that his flight risk was minimal.
As Taylor left the courtroom, reporters asked him if he would be in training camp, which starts on August 1 at the Redskins' training facility in Ashburn, Virginia. His response was "We'll see."
Taylor's attorney, Edward Carhart later said that he fully expected Taylor to report to Ashburn on time, "I hope so," Carhart said. "I'm sure he hopes so. I'm sure the Redskins hope so. . . . I can't call the shots for him, but I would expect to see him in camp."
Judge: Taylor Can Travel to Camp
