Swann’s attorney in the case, Ian M. Pickens, has issued the following statement to Sporting News regarding Swann’s case:
“At this point, no criminal charges have been filed officially against him so depending on how that process plays out will determine our scope of representation,” Pickens said Friday morning in a telephone interview.
“We’re hopeful for a fair and quick resolution on behalf of Mr. Swann, but ultimately the state attorney will make their decision (on potential charges) when they deem it appropriate.
“We’re working on the case now and things we may do to assist Mr. Swann. But as far as specifics, I can’t comment on that.”
