UNLV guard Tre'Von Willis was arrested last month on the accounts that he beat up his girlfriend Skye Sanders because she was sending text messages to friends and not paying attention to Willis. Last week an arraignment hearing took place without the presence of Willis, but his lawyer Steve Wolfson believes that when the facts will come out Willis will be exonerated:
"The police did a preliminary investigation and that is what is the basis of the charges," Wolfson said. "We're doing our own investigation and I'm confident that when all the facts and the truth comes out, that Tre'Von will play basketball this year for UNLV, have a great year, perhaps be the leading scorer again and have a great future."
Willis has said that he only had a verbal altercation with Sanders, but that he did not become physical with her. Willis also plead not guilty to these charges. This could be tricky with the November 22nd court date, as the Rebels openr their season on November 12th.
