Judge delays proceedings against former football player
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A judge has agreed to halt court proceedings against former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle until he receives another mental evaluation.
The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/2cCcv2P ) reports that defense attorney Steven Mank sought the delay Thursday. The prosecution didn't object.
The 24-year-old Randle was deemed competent in June to stand trial on charges that he hit people with his car during a housewarming party and dodged police trying to serve him with a warrant. He also is charged in two other cases.
A bench trial set for Thursday in one of the cases didn't happen because of Mank's request. The other three cases had been set for jury trials next week.
A report from the mental evaluation is expected to be completed within about two weeks.
