Quinnipiac men’s basketball trial postponed
Quinnipiac men’s basketball players Ike Azotam and James Johnson appeared in Meriden Superior Court today to testify against assault and breach of peace charges, but the trial was postponed pending a supplemental Hamden Police report requested by defense attorney Thomas Lynch. Under Judge Philip Scarpellino’s approval, the trial will continue Nov. 16.
“It’s working its way through the process,” Lynch said. “There’s some more information Hamden Police will be getting up to the state’s attorney’s office.”
Hamden Police were unavailable for comment at this time.
“We just have a straight continuance of the case until [Nov.] 16,” Lynch said. “That’s the way these cases work themselves out.”
Azotam, a 20-year-old sophomore, and Johnson, a 21-year-old senior, were involved in an on-campus fight Sept. 18, according to Hamden Police, and pleaded not guilty to the charges at their arraignment Sept. 26. The students were sanctioned by the university on Oct. 6.
Quinnipiac head coach Tom Moore said he suspended the players once he heard of the incident and reinstated them once the university sanctions were lifted.
Both Azotam and Johnson were absent during Quinnipiac’s Midnight Madness event, but remain on the team’s roster for the upcoming season.
