Haynesworth due in court
WASHINGTON (AP) - NFL defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth is due in court the day before the scheduled start of a misdemeanor sexual abuse trial.
Haynesworth is scheduled to be in D.C. Superior Court on Monday afternoon.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office declined to comment on the reason for the hastily scheduled status conference, though it could suggest a possible plea agreement.
Haynesworth is accused of groping the breast of a waitress while having drinks with friends at the W Hotel in Washington last February. He has denied wrongdoing.
Haynesworth was traded to the New England Patriots last month from the Washington Redskins.
