Dalvin Cook got an accelerated trial. Now, if he is found not guilty, how fast will he able to rejoin his Florida State Seminoles?
Cook’s court case has been moved up to August 24, giving him as many as an extra 10 days to practice if he is found not guilty. If he is found guilty, it would be difficult for coach Jimbo Fisher to welcome him back any time soon following the insistence that he is opposed to domestic violence.
The original court case was Sept. 2, three days before FSU’s opening game against Texas State.
Cook is accused of punching a woman in a parking lot in June. He has denied wrongdoing, and his attorneys have been outspoken about not accepting any plea deals. There is no video of the incident, which puts it squarely in the hands of the court and the witnesses. Last week, Cook’s attorney Ricky Patel said that a new witness had come forth that would support Cook’s version of the incident.
