Albert Haynesworth's Absence In Court Causes Judge To Scold His Lawyer

Albert Haynesworth reportedly missed a preliminary hearing for his sexual assault case, but apparently, he isn't the one getting trouble over it. The guys at Hogs Haven uncovered a story that details what happened after Haynesworth was absent, and the real victim seems to be his lawyer A. Scott Bolden.

The defense attorney in Albert Haynesworth's misdemeanor sexual abuse trial has been reprimanded by the judge for the Redskins player's absence in court for a preliminary hearing...A. Scott Bolden, Haynesworth's attorney, told D.C. Superior Court Senior Judge Patricia Wynn he believed an earlier ruling specified that Haynesworth was allowed to waive his presence since the case is a misdemeanor. [Judge Wynn's response] "This is his first priority. I would expect he'd be here."

See, the judge presiding over this case must know Albert very well. The Redskins paid him an incredible amount of money, you think they'd be his priority too; and that's certainly not the case. Might be a bad matchup for Albert.
