Kobe Bryant ready to enter not-guilty plea, lawyer says | Denver Post
Bryant ready to enter not-guilty plea, lawyer says

By Howard Pankratz
Denver Post Legal Affairs Writer


AP / Ed Andrieski
NBA star Kobe Bryant leaves the Justice Center
in Eagle today during a lunch break in a pretrial
hearing on his sexual assault case.


Kobe Bryant's defense lawyers today said that the basketball star has no problem with entering a plea or setting a trial date as requested by prosecutors and the woman accusing him of rape, as soon as a judge decides "the appropriate date" for the plea.

Bryant's lawyer, Hal Haddon, said that Bryant will plead "not guilty" to the allegation he sexually assaulted the 19-year-old woman on June 30.

"Kobe Bryant has always wanted an early trial date that would accommodate the court's docket and scheduling requirements," Haddon wrote on behalf of Bryant.

Once Bryant enters the plea, the trial would have to be held within six months, unless the basketball player would later waive his right to a speedy trial.

Haddon also branded the woman's accusation as untrue.

1. Ya know...I just don't care
An over paid athlete and a seemingly innocent girl. Its got nothing to do with race. Men are ruled by their stiff willies and there is nothing we, as women, can do nothing about it. Hes going to be acquitted because hes worth millions and she is branded a slut with mental problems. Is racism alive in AmeriKKKA? YOU FUCKING BET IT IS.
