    Default It just gets better: Star> Jackson's court date in Michigan set

    "Better" is of course, sarcasm.

    Jackson court date in Michigan set
    By Mike Wells

    Indiana Pacers guard Stephen Jackson is scheduled to be in Rochester Hills, Mich., district court Nov. 13 for a hearing on probation violation.

    Jackson’s probation for his part in the 2004 brawl was scheduled to end Sept. 23, 2006, but was extended to Sept. 23, 2007, as he tries to reach a restitution agreement in a civil suit. Jackson's lawyer, Jim Voyles, said earlier this week that William Pawlson, represented by Geoffrey Fieger, has a pending civil suit against Jackson from the brawl.

    Rochester Hills (Mich.) court administrator Lynda Hammerstein said a petition has been filed because Jackson was charged with felony and misdemeanor counts of battery and disorderly conduct for his part in a fight outside a Westside strip club late last week.

    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Big deal, JO had to do it too. I'm sure Artest and maybe AJ will have to go too.

    Leisure Suit Larry, those guys are going up for civil suits that could result in financial damages, not for probation violation that could result in 93 days in jail.

    Do you ever read the post/ thread before you react?

    He has a hearing for "probation violation."

    JO was up there earlier this week to defend himself in a civil trial. Big, big difference.

    From now on, I'll just assume you don't read anything before you spout off. For one last time, while I'm not ignoring you, I'll provide one other quote from the short (3 paragraph) article at the top of the thread:

    I just thought it was the same thing JO had to do Wednesday.

    The crazy thing is 1 week ago right now, Jackson was considering whether he should go out or not, he decided to and look what happened. Overall I feel bad for him, yes he deserves a lot of this, but he's had some bad luck and just as a person I feel bad for him.
