Hearns' assault hearing delayed until Jan. 26
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. -- Thomas Hearns' pretrial hearing on a charge that he struck his 13-year-old son was postponed Friday so the former boxing champion's lawyer could gather more information.
Hearns is to return to court Jan 26. If convicted of the misdemeanor assault and battery charge, he faces a maximum penalty of about three months in jail and a $500 fine.
Neither Hearns nor his attorney, Michael Smith, commented following Friday's appearance before Judge Shelia Johnson.
