Hearing in Marshawn Lynch's DUI case set for May 22

Tacoma News Tribune - [Full Article]

There have been some questions on the blog about Marshawn Lynch’s pending DUI case in Alameda County, in the Bay Area.

Specifically, there’s been some hand-wringing among the Seahawks’ faithful, with Seattle drafting Texas A&M running back Christine Michael in the second round that Lynch could possibly face a suspension in the upcoming season, depending on his outcome in court.

So drafting Michael could be a sign that the Seahawks wanted to protect themselves.

According to Teresa Drenick, assistant district attorney for the Alameda County District Attorney’s office, Lynch has a May 22 court date for a motion to suppress evidence and a motion to dismiss the case.

Another date to keep in mind is June 21, when the case is set to go to a jury trial.

Fantasy Impact: 

The case will weigh down Lynch's fantasy stock this summer as it's entirely possible that he faces a league suspension if convicted.
