Murchison pleads not guilty

Husky cornerback Jordan Murchison plead not guilty this morning in King County Court to a charge of felony second-degree assault.
He will have a pre-trail hearing Aug. 30.
This is the court date Murchison had missed earlier this summer that resulted in a warrant being issued for his arrest. He turned himself in last week.
He has been indefinitely suspended from the team and it is unclear if or when he may return. UW coach Tyrone Willingham indicated this week that he would wait until the legal process plays out before deciding Murchison’s status with the team, though he also said he reserved the right to change his mind.
Here’s a story with background on Murchison’s situation.
UPDATE — Could probably be pointed out, as well, that his pre-trial hearing of Aug. 30 is the day before UW plays at Syracuse — and a day after the Huskies will leave. So he can probably be ruled out of that game. And as the story above indicates, Murchison also has a September court date on his other case.
