Braylon Edwards' DWI Case Adjourned Until Week of NFL Playoffs
Edwards' case was adjourned Tuesday until Jan. 11, the week of the NFL divisional playoffs. Peter Frankel, Edwards' attorney, asked for time to file written motions.
"The schedule reflects what's normally done in most criminal cases," he said. "I can tell you without hesitation it's not getting any special treatment."
The case might not even go to court. There have been plea discussions, according to the prosecution, although Frankel preferred to call them "in-depth discussions about the case itself."
If found guilty, Edwards could face discipline from the NFL and/or the Cleveland Municipal Court. Edwards is still on probation in Cleveland after pleading no contest to aggravated disorderly conduct related to a 2009 incident. By just being arrested and charged, Edwards isn't in violation of probation, but a conviction in the DWI case would be a different matter.
Edwards, who had his license suspended because of the arrest, has been using a driver, according to Frankel.
