Boubacar Cissoko's disorderly conduct case set for October trial
Michigan cornerback Boubacar Cissoko has pled not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct stemming from a summer traffic arrest and faces trial Oct. 27, a representative of Detroit's 36th district court said Tuesday.
He could receive up to a $1,000 fine and 90 days in jail, but likely will face a much lighter penalty if convicted.
He declined to talk about the case when approached by a reporter at Michigan media day Sunday.
Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said Cissoko is expected to start opposite Donovan Warren in Michigan's thin secondary this fall. Cissoko was disciplined internally this summer.
"Boubacar and Donovan are outstanding cover guys," Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said. "Some corners don’t like to play press and get in your face. You want ones that want and relish that and want to get in and play some press one-on-one man coverage, be aggressive on the edge. And both those guys have that kind of mentality."
