Last week New England was rocked by the news that the Patriots’ hard hitting safety, Patrick Chung, had been indicted on charges of cocaine possession.
Chung was due in court Wednesday, but after his attorney plead not guilty for him yesterday, he won’t have to appear again this week.
The Patriots’ safety was indicted last week by a grand jury in New Hampshire after police found cocaine in his house on June 25th. Officials said that the police had been called to the house due to an alarm being tripped and had reason to enter when no one answered.
The 32 year-old is now scheduled to head back to court on November 8th, and if convicted, he faces a sentence of 3.5 to seven years. He addressed the media yesterday, the first time he’s spoken out since the indictment hit last week, but he was only interested in speaking about football.https://twitter.com/RaulNBCBoston/status/1166105418499801091?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.tmz.com%2F2019%2F08%2F26%2Fpatrick-chung-not-guilty-cocaine-new-england-patriots%2F
“Honestly, I’m here to talk about football….I’m here to talk about the Giants….My mindset is all the same.” said Chung to reporters.
The team posted the statement below through Twitter last week. No comment has been issued by the team as of yet after Chung’s not guilty plea yesterday.https://twitter.com/Patriots/status/1164572757734154246?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1164572757734154246&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftheshadowleague.com%2Fpatriots-patrick-chung-indicted-for-cocaine-possession%2F
