Cowboys Rookie CB Jourdan Lewis Acquitted of Domestic Assault

SI.com

A jury has acquitted Cowboys rookie cornerback Jourdan Lewis of domestic assault, CBS Sports reports. The panel deliberated for slightly more than an hour Tuesday before finding the former Michigan star not guilty.

Lewis said he was “elated” with the verdict. The verdict should mean that Lewis is on the playing field from day one for the Cowboys, who are picked to win about eight games in 2018. If you want to place a wager on that or play other great casino games, get a sun bets promo code today.

Looking at draftkings this season there’s going to be plenty of Cowboys to play this season, and with Lewis back in the fold, their defense is one you will want to check out.

The 21-year-old Lewis was accused of assaulting his former girlfriend at his Ann Arbor apartment in March. Lewis didn’t testify, but the jury saw a video recording of a police interview in which he said he was asleep when the woman woke him to complain about finances, and he hit her with a pillow.

The woman testified he struck her in the face so hard she was forced into a wall.

Now that Lewis is not guilty and able to get back on the field, he might have a bigger role for the team after he was picked in the 3rd round of the 2017 draft.

The team already has released veteran Orlando Scandrick, and added former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richard to take over as the teams secondary coach/passing game coordinator.

Richard is known for liking bigger cornerbacks, so it is still up in the air what role Lewis will play for the 2018 Cowboys, as he doesn’t have the size as some of the bigger corners in the NFL.

Lewis was a top prospect out of Michigan, and has always been known for his tough attitude, one where he’s not afraid to go up against other top players on other teams, and that is something that drew the Cowboys to him when they drafted him.

Now what Lewis will be able to do in this new defense is anyone’s guess, but the biggest thing is he’s off the hook from being prosecuted, and that’s something that had to be on his mind as he was getting ready for camp as well as trying to do the best he could for the team in 2018.

Look for Lewis to have a solid impact on the team, and with an innocent verdict returned, he should be ready to go both physically and mentally for the team as they take the field this season.

    I recall from the military that a person being rudely woken isn’t responsible for their actions for thirty seconds. I don’t remember much about its origin but it made sense.
