its true our legal system takes far too much time to prosecute someone but i cant image ST actually wanting the case to go to trial.
To your first point, that's even more reason why people need to chilax for a minute until they reveal exactly the role that he played and the complete charges.

As to your second point, I don't think the NFL can suspend him 4 games for a first offense if convicted/plea bargained. I am pretty sure a one game suspension is the max for the first offense. Had he pled/been convicted on the DUI then maybe a 4 game suspension but I'm sure it is less than 4 games for the first offense.

Re: Talyor 2 Be Charged 4 Aggravated Assault

SI.com is saying something different:

Police said Taylor, 22, was accompanied by his attorney, Fred Moldovan, when he turned himself in. He has been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and simple battery.

According to police, Taylor pointed a gun at someone last Wednesday during a dispute over two all terrain vehicles he claims the victims had stolen. Taylor, who was with others, left the scene but returned about 10 minutes later and assaulted one victim with his fists. Another man, Charles Elwood Caughman, threatened and chased another victim with a baseball bat, police said.

Caughman, 19, was arrested later that day and charged with aggravated assault, police said.

If I had my way, he would be cut, but I understand it doesn't work that way. I really would rather just cut our losses now and move on, even if it hurts us in the short run.

...and in that spirit, I'd hope something like the following might happen:

*ring* *mumble*

Taylor's Mom: "Sean, Mr. Rosenhaus is on the phone."

Sean Taylor: "What does he want?"

Taylor's Mom: "He says that contract renegotiation isn't goin' so well anymore."

Sean Taylor: "Tell him I'll call him back."

*mumble* *click*

...forty-five seconds later...

*ring* *mumble*

Taylor's Mom: "Sean, Mr. Gibbs is on the phone."

Sean Taylor: "What does he want?"

Taylor's Mom: "He says you can't come to camp unless you renegotiate your contract."

Sean Taylor: "Huh? ...Let me talk to him!"

Taylor's Mom: "He hung up."

My friend lived in Vero Beach and he's a card-carrying member of the NRA and he told me the same thing - Florida doesn't screw around with criminals who mess with guns. However, a plea agreement is reached in 98% of all criminal cases. I would have to imagine that any such plea agreement would result in a lowering of the weapons charge to a non-firearm related offense.

Re: Talyor 2 Be Charged 4 Aggravated Assault

The modern day star athlete rarely goes to jail. Taylor may face charges but will end up with probation and community service. Rosenhaus and his lawyers will make sure of that if the charges even hold up. Hell if you are an NFL star--you can kill someone nowadays and get off (Leonard Little).

Me or you point a gun at someone=we're going to jail.

Sean Taylor ends up in bed with a dead hooker=probation and community service...

Re: Talyor 2 Be Charged 4 Aggravated Assault

offiss,
dude flashing a gun at a guy is a crime...hate to break it to you, and since it involves said gun it is also a gun related cime. you can't just threaten people with a gat.
btw, do you think he has a concealed weapons permit or the gun is registered? doubt it.

Re: Talyor 2 Be Charged 4 Aggravated Assault

Assault

Threat to inflict injury with an apparent ability to do so. Also, any intentional display of force that would give the victim reason to fear or expect immediate bodily harm.

Assault = Crime
Assault with a weapon = really bad crime

you don't have to shoot, hit, bite someone to be charged with assault. using a weapon to intimidate or threaten is assault with a deadly weapon.
If he's been charged with felony aggravated assault, that is a min one year sentence. Add the gun to the equation and the stakes go up. Of course, I am sure he has a great lawyer on retainer.
Don't embarass the organization? I'd say this is pretty embarassing.

Re: Talyor 2 Be Charged 4 Aggravated Assault

well he's been released on bond and they are gonna set up a date later, but i hope he takes this time to come back to camp, apologize for making the redskins look bad, and use whatever free time he has left to workout with the team. if i were him i would drop all contract renegotiations (sp), and try to salvage what's left of this offseason before he possilbly goes to jail for an extended period of time.

Re: Talyor 2 Be Charged 4 Aggravated Assault

Washington Post reported today (Sunday) that he's only a person of interest and don't know if he was a victim, witness, or if he participated. I hope this is false!

We've got a lot of speculation and few facts.

Re: Talyor 2 Be Charged 4 Aggravated Assault

inflicting harm does not matter. threatening to inflict harm is aggravated assault. aggravated assault is a felony. he has been charged with aggravated assault and released on bond. if indeed these guys stole his ATV's (not his car) and he had a permit for a weapon (yet to be determined) you still can't flash a gun at someone and then come back later and beat some guy up. it dosn't matter if they stole his crap, you can't brandish a weapon unless it's self defense. the fact that he left the scene then came back and beat some dude does not ring of self defense BUT aggravated assault. doesn't mean he'll be found guilty or go to jail. it DOES mean, he is a total jackass.
