Chris Jones returns to court; case waived to grand jury

03/09/2015 03:32 PM

Former Louisville point guard Chris Jones returned to court today. But it was a very brief appearance, as prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed to waive the case to a grand jury.

Jones was charged with rape and sodomy on February 26. The news came just days after Jones was abruptly dismissed from the UofL basketball team.

Following Monday’s court hearing, Jones’ attorney Scott Cox explained the decision to waive the case to the grand jury.

Jones’ case is expected to go to a grand jury next month.
