Alabama starting offensive lineman Cam Robinson and backup safety Laurence “Hootie” Jones will appear in court next month to be arraigned on charges from their arrests earlier this week.
Robinson and Jones have a court appearance scheduled in Monroe, La. on June 16, according to a report from AL.com’s Matt Zenitz. Assuming they have hired attorneys by that time, both players will have the charges against them read and enter pleas of guilty or not guilty.
Jones and Robinson were charged with illegal carrying of a weapon in the presence of narcotics and possession of a controlled/dangerous substance, both misdemeanors. Robinson was also charged with illegal carrying of stolen firearms, which is listed as a felony.
On Tuesday, Alabama coach Nick Saban said he was “disappointed” with the choices that led to the arrests, but that the program is still gathering information.
Robinson was projected to be the Crimson Tide’s starting left tackle for the upcoming season, while Jones was vying for more playing time after spending a majority of his first two seasons on special teams.
