Aqib Talib's grand jury hearing postponted

I case some are wondering why there hasn't been an update on Aqib Talib's grand jury hearing, it's been pushed back. Here's the update found in today's newspaper.

A Dallas County grand jury, scheduled to hear evidence in the Texas shooting case involving Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib, has been tentatively reset to May 25, according to attorney Frank Perez.

Talib is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second degree felony which carries a punishment of two to 20 years in prison, for his role in a March 21 shooting in Garland, Texas.

Police say Talib tried to pistol whip, and later fired gunshots at, his sister's boyfriend, Shannon Billings. Nobody was injured. Talib's mother, Okolo, faces similar charges.

Originally, the grand jury had been scheduled to hear testimony today.
