Ex-U.Va. Lax Player’s Sentencing Won’t Be Delayed
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — The sentencing of a former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend will be held as scheduled later this month.
Media outlets say a Charlottesville Circuit Court judge on Monday denied George Huguely’s request to delay his Aug. 30 sentencing until after Oct. 1.
The Chevy Chase, Md., man was convicted in February of second-degree murder in the 2010 death of Yeardley Love of suburban Baltimore. Love was a member of the women’s lacrosse team.
An Aug. 22 hearing is set on another defense motion seeking a new trial. Huguely’s attorneys claim prosecutors erred by not telling them that Love’s mother was planning to sue Huguely.
