Delays

It looks like “Johnny Football” has reached some sort of deal where the domestic violence charges against him will be dismissed.

Forget who this is about and what he is accused of. It’s the timeline that resonated with me.

The former Browns Quarterback was accused of hitting his girlfriend in January.

He wasn’t indicted until April.

There have been brief court appearances every once in a while since then but Manziel is free to go about his business and no one seems in a rush to resolve anything.

I’m witnessing this snail’s pace with Kim’s trial. Today will be the third pre-trial hearing. The last two have been just a couple of minutes each and then both sides agree to come back in a month.

Technically, this trial has nothing to do with me. The city prosecutor sits on one side and the defendant and his attorney sit on the other side.

Tomorrow I will post the addendum I wrote for the victim statement but I just don’t understand the delays and the general pace of this trial.

“Johnny Football”‘s case is still unresolved for an event that happened almost a year ago.
