Haynesworth due in court today

Patriots defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth is due in court the day before the scheduled start of a misdemeanor sexual abuse trial. He is scheduled to be in D.C. Superior Court on Monday afternoon.

A news story on Haynesworth is now posted on ESPNBoston.com.

In the story, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office declined to comment on the reason for the hastily scheduled status conference, though it could suggest a possible plea agreement.
