Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has a new trial date in Miami on charges he pointed a gun during a dispute.

The trial had been set to begin Monday, but a Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge set a new date of July 10th during a brief hearing. It's the seventh time the trial has been delayed.

Taylor, who wasn't present at Monday's hearing, has pleaded not guilty and is free on bail.

The latest delay happened after the prosecutor in the case resigned from the state attorney's office after defense lawyers claimed he was using the notoriety to promote his side business as a nightclub disc jockey. The lawyer had posted links to news coverage of the case on a personal Internet site.

Taylor faces a faces a minimum of three years in prison on each of three aggravated assault charges.
