Talib case back in court Thursday

The attorney for Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib will be back in a Dallas County courtroom Thursday for an initial discussion with the state about the case.

A grand jury returned an indictment Friday against Talib and his mother, Okolo, for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second degree felony that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Talib, who has attended some workouts organized in Tampa by Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman, does not have to attend the hearing.

Attorney Frank Perez called it an 'initial discussion between me and the state on his case.''
