COLUMBIA — Former Missouri tailback Derrick Washington was issued an eighth continuance for his domestic assault trial that was set for Wednesday, according to court records.
On Monday, Washington's felony trial was delayed likely until early fall. At the time, his attorney, Christopher Slusher, had predicted the misdemeanor would be pushed back as well, citing that it was standard for the more serious of multiple cases to be tried first.
Judge Deborah Daniels set the new domestic assault trial for 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 9, noting that it would be just shy of one year since Washington had been charged. There is no trial date set for the felony charges, but prosecuting attorney Andrea Hayes estimated it would begin sometime in late August or early September.
