Jordan Jefferson and attorney Rob Marionneaux are all smiles as they carry 19 pairs of shoes the court returned to Jefferson.
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Police investigators returned 33 pairs of shoes belonging to suspended LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson on Monday.
He and one of his attorneys, Rob Marionneaux, picked up some of the shoes seized when police searched Jefferson's apartment on Aug 24.
Investigators were looking for clues related to a bar fight several weeks ago.
A motion was filed to have the sneakers returned to Jefferson, but Judge Chip Moore put the matter off for two weeks, giving investigators more time to complete testing on the shoes at the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab.
However, a few minutes after the hearing, Jefferson's attorneys received a call that some of his property would be released. Investigators still have 16 pairs of shoes left to be tested.
"If this case ends up being dismissed because of witnesses credibility, then Jordan Jefferson has lost two weeks, now three weeks, of his future, his life," Marionneaux said.
Both sides will be back in court in two weeks to take this all up again. Jefferson remains suspended from the team.
The shoes were collected as part of an investigation into a fight in the parking lot of Shady's, which is near the university's campus.
Jefferson and linebacker Josh Johns were both arrested on battery charges.
They were both also suspended indefinitely from the team.
