Former five-star recruit Jeffery Simmons dominated headlines during the recent SEC spring meetings when it was announced that he would be admitted to school in spite of pending legal charges for an alleged incident involving a domestic dispute with a woman.
On Tuesday, WCBI in Mississippi reported that Simmons’ case will be continued. In legal terms, a continuance means the proceeding have been delayed until a future date.
It is reportedly the second time that the Simmons case has been delayed, as the May hearing was pushed back due to a dispute over a restitution payment. There has yet to be a reason reported for Tuesday’s continuance.
Simmons was admitted to Mississippi State in spite of the charges, which include simple assault and disturbing the peace.
The defensive lineman received a one-game suspension as a part of the conditions for his admittance to the university.
