Like everyone in our current culture...Pooka is guilty as hell until HE proves he is innocent.

Too bad he is from Louisiana, if he was from Honduras he would simply be misunderstood.


If he was from Honduras he would be given carte blanche to steal, assault, and battery the general public at all times. In Lawrence he would be given the key to the city

If only we had a beautiful wall around Lawrence we could keep all those criminal rapist non whites out. Tongue in cheek

Here's the basics of what I'm hearing now.

Pooka and his girl got in a scuff. Girl asked him to apologize about it and when he wouldn't she then called the police the day after the incident occurred. Witnesses are saying Pooka didn't choke or punch her, but she's claiming otherwise. There's scant to no evidence to back up her claim and the text message from Pooka apparently says he may have accidentally hit her on the arm (while trying to hit something or someone else) during the scuff.

I can't confirm any of this as only Pooka and the girl know the truth and the police I believe have the text messages in question.

Speaking again with someone I know who has had cases in Lawrence/Douglas County says he wouldn't be surprised if the charges eventually get dropped or at worse a plea deal is reached with Pooka doing diversion where his record is wiped clean on completion. They said if there was good evidence Pooka had either choked her or hit her in the stomach he'd have faced felony charges and not misdemeanor ones. If either of those cases is how it plays out, I just don't see how he'd be kicked off the team. If I had to guess right now, my guess is he serves a suspension of some kind but ends up playing the majority of the season next year but he better keep his nose clean the rest of the off-season.

Looks like Pooka has agreed to a diversion deal.

I'm guessing he'll have to do some community service and attend some classes as part of this diversion agreement.

Not sure what coach Miles will do, but I think Pooka will be playing for KU this Fall.

If my memory serves me correct, you're a lawyer, so what do you make of that if indeed he hasn't signed the diversion document?

I haven't had any contact with my lawyer acquaintances in a while and 1 thought there was a chance this could even get dismissed. Do you think that could be a reason why Pooka hadn't signed anything yet (again, if indeed that is true)? I've heard the girl had signed off on Pooka getting diversion, so I don't think there's anything from that side holding this up.

If you're asking about Pooka, the answer is yes. He was at the bball game last night too.

Also, I just heard the case may have been dismissed and charges dropped. Can't confirm this yet, but someone just told me this is what they heard. If true, this would explain why Pooka hadn't signed the diversion agreement.

You should be ashamed of...well just about everything you do on the internet...but in this case for publicly charging, trying, and convicting a young man for a crime based on ZERO actual knowledge of what did or did not happen and then claiming to be morally outraged because the legal system dismissed the case and dropped the charges.

How dare they not realize your public crucifixion of him! How dare the Douglas County DA not throw the book at him as you know he's 100% guilty!

Then to claim KU or KU fans should be ashamed of the legal process! GMAFB!!

Seems to me there's some old cliche about not judging others lest ye be judged and another about glass houses and all. Wonder how and why they came about?
