Charges delayed against Williams
May, 22, 2013
Prosecutors need more time to review allegations of second-degree assault charge against Boston Celtics guard Terrence Williams, who was expected back in court on Wednesday. From the Seattle Times:
King County prosecutors said they need more time to review the allegations against NBA player Terrence Williams, who was arrested Sunday after the mother of his 10-year-old son told police he had flashed a handgun at her.
“There’s an ongoing investigation and a charging decision will be made at a later date,” Dan Donohoe, a spokesman for the prosecuting attorney’s office, said today.
Today was the deadline for prosecutors to file a second-degree assault charge against Williams, a former Rainier Beach High School star.
Williams was released from the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent on Monday after he posted $25,000 bail. His attorney, Aaron Kiviat, had said at the bail hearing Monday that the claims by the alleged victim was not the full story.
