Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill will stand trial in Issaquah Municipal Court next month for a domestic violence charge.
Hill faces a misdemeanor assault charge related to the April 10 incident. During a brief appearance Friday morning Hill stood alongside his attorney as the court scheduled the trial. Hill will appear again before Judge N. Scott Stewart on July 14.
Issaquah police arrested Hill after a late-night domestic incident at his Talus home. Officers said a dispute occurred between Hill and his then-girlfriend. Police said the woman had marks and injuries consistent with assault; she told police Hill caused the injuries.
The domestic violence incident occurred less than a month after a Georgia judge sentenced Hill to 12 months probation for marijuana possession. The probation could be revoked because of the domestic violence charge.
Meanwhile, Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll has not said whether Hill will stay on the team for the coming season. Hill has not been part of any off-season practices since the Issaquah arrest. He signed a six-year contract with the Seahawks last year.
