The attorney for suspended LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson requested on Friday a hearing for a judge to determine whether there is probable cause to charge Jefferson.

Lewis Unglesby said Friday that he filed the motion to expedite the legal process and clear Jefferson of a second-degree battery count he is facing from his alleged involvement in a fight Aug. 19 outside Shady’s bar on East Boyd Drive.

“There’s nowhere for him to go to solve this problem, so I’m trying to get the legal system, which caused the problem, to fix it,” Unglesby said.

It is uncertain when the hearing will be set.
