A former CFL star charged in the alleged assault of his former girlfriend in Calgary now has a lawyer. Joffrey Reynolds was not in the courtroom as he's now being represented by Randi Collins.
She told the court that she needs disclosure and lawyers agreed to push the case back to September 6th.
The 32-year-old Reynolds faces two counts of assault and one count of house-breaking with intent.
They stem from an alleged incident in an Eau Claire residence involving his former girlfriend.
The case set off a firestorm of other issues, including a work permit expiration which landed him in the custody of Canada Border Services.
Reynolds has been out of custody since being granted bail.
He's the Stampeders' all-time leading rusher, but has been a free agent since losing his starting job to Jon Cornish last season.
