Buccaneers: Pittman’s trail date set in January
The News
Buccaneers’ running back Michael Pittman won't have to stand trial on felony assault charges in Arizona until January, reports the St. Petersburg Times. Pittman's wife, Melissa, and the family's babysitter, Kristina Hegland, failed to show up for the pretrial conference and warrants for the arrests have been made. "Melissa has made it evident to Maricopa County that she has no intention of proceeding in this matter," Melissa Pittman's attorney, Ed Brennan, told the Times. "Their intention is to make an example of Michael. If the victims don't want to prosecute, what is the point?" Pittman still faces a probation revocation hearing in November which could send him to jail for up to six months.


It's now obvious that Pittman's wife doesn't want to prosecute, but the legal system is trying to force a trail. Either way, Pittman’s chances of playing this season are growing and we won’t hear anything further about court dates (or the postponement of court dates) until November. Gruden has said that he would start Pittman if he is available to play, however, the league could still levy a punishment of its own before the season starts.

thanks for the update.

We knew she wanted to drop charges, so this isnt that shocking, but it is interesting from a nonfootball view how this will play out. What happens if a crime occurs, but the victim refuses to press charges? interesting.

From a fantasy standpoint, this still doesnt make Pittman much more valuable than a bye week fill in.

gotta love board trolls :-t

I agree it will be interesting to see what the DA does in this situation. I'm sure they are going to try to get him if for no other reason they will get some press taking a NFL player to court.

1. Even if Pittman does get to come back and play without the harrassment of a trial, who expects him to do anything?

Sans the Superbowl performance..he's not worth a start anywhere. Expecially considering there's only about 3425436 running backs on TB's roster.

2. Cornbread is there something you're not telling us? ;-) JK man...not every day the trolls rear their ugly heads around here.

Luckily you don't have to have the victims support to prosecute a criminal case. (Well, I guess not lucky if you own Pittman, but lucky if you want to keep thugs from threatening or sweet-talking their victims into dropping the case.)

On another topic, does Jones have a decent chance of stealing Pittmans job? Pittman has been the Antowain Smith of the NFC for the last two years.

Is this the same Thomas Jones that lost his Job to Shipp who lost his job to Smith who lost his job to Hambrick who Parcells has so much faith in that he brought in Murrell just in case.
