MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — The attorney for suspended Montana starting quarterback Jordan Johnson says his client is still enrolled in classes at the university as he defends himself against a rape charge.
David Paoli told the Missoulian (http://bit.ly/SZBP2E ) he released the statement Thursday to stop calls from the media seeking Johnson's enrollment status.
At Johnson's arraignment earlier this month, Paoli said his client planned to attend fall classes and that arrangements had been made with UM to ensure that no one violates a civil no-contact agreement between Johnson and his accuser, who is also a UM student.
Johnson is charged with sexual intercourse without consent in connection with an alleged Feb. 4 assault. He was suspended from the team after he was charged.
