Jefferson appears in District Court for motion hearing
BATON ROUGE, LA (FOX44) – Jordan Jefferson appeared in District Court this morning in Baton Rouge. The primary focus was to hear a motion to have Jefferson’s shoes returned, which were confiscated by the Baton Rouge Police Department.
The LSU quarterback is charged with Second Degree Battery, which his attorney says is a baseless charge. He says that Jefferson should not have been charged before the investigation was completed, and is looking to have the charges dropped.
Judge Moore delayed the ruling in the motion to have Jefferson’s shoes returned for two weeks. That’s because the prosecution has not received the police reports yet detailing what they discovered.
Jennifer Crockett was in court for the entire proceeding. She will have a full report on FOX44 News at 9 p.m.
