Detroit Lions safety Amari Spievey had his court date regarding charges of third degree assault, risk of injury to a child and disorderly conduct in Middletown, Conn., pushed back to June 28, according to the Middletown News.
Meanwhile, Spievey was granted a request to participate in a family violence education program “out of state” (presumably in Michigan), which should let him take part in the Lions’ offseason training program that begins next week.
If he successfully completes his counseling sessions by June 28, all charges against him will be dismissed, according to the report.
Spievey was charged following a dispute over child support with his girlfriend and the mother of his child Lisamarie Santos on March 27. Santos was also charged on two counts.
