Report: Lawyer of Alabama DB Deionte Thompson provides update on player's legal case
It looks like there may be progress in the assault case involving Alabama DB Deionte Thompson.
Matt Zenitz of AL.com reports Thompson’s lawyer Sean Villery-Samuel has formal statements from several witnesses that claim Thompson was not involved in the incident.
“All of the videos that I have seen and that I’ve been able to get access to doesn’t show (Thompson),” Villery-Samuel said. “We have the numerous witnesses that we’ve given to the district attorney’s office that indicate that he wasn’t involved in this incident at all.”
Villery-Samuel believes it was Thompson’s reputation that led to him being identified as one of the attackers.
“I just think it was a matter of they knew who he was and he was the easiest one to pick out,” explained Villery-Samuel. “We have nothing to hide, and we’re just ready for them to make the right decision and not move forward with the case.”
Thompson appeared in six games as a freshman last season and recorded nine tackles.
