Tyson DUI Trial Set for August
Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson was given an August 20th trial date earlier today on charges of driving under the influence as well as charges of drug possession as well.
For those who aren’t aware of what is going on, Tyson was originally arrested on December 29th of last year. He was pulled over by police after leaving a nightclub and an officer proceeded to find bags and cigarette packs of cocaine on Tyson. Tyson also pleaded not guilty on January 22nd.
Tyson’s lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, stated that Tyson was released from a California rehabilitation facility earlier this week and that he has been sober for 72 straight days.
Just like we reported with our earlier reports on the Tyson DUI case, Mesa, Arizona County Attorney Andrew Thomas is continuing to say that prosecutors will pursue prison time for Tyson as they feel that he has run out of second chances. If convicted on all charges, Tyson could face up to 7 years in jail…
