Samuels' case adjourned until Nov. 21

By Mike Mazzeo

Former Mets clubhouse attendant Charlie Samuels' court case has been adjourned until Nov. 21, according to a spokesman from the Queens District Criminal Court.

In May, Samuels was arraigned on charges that he criminally possessed nearly $2.3 million worth of game-used memorabilia -- including signed jerseys, bats and baseballs -- that belonged to the Mets' organization.

Samuels, who was with the team 27 seasons, was also charged with embezzling $24,955 from the Mets by submitting inflated expense claims and failing to report or pay taxes on $203,789 in tips and dues that he received from Mets players and others in 2008 and 2009.

On Sept. 26, the day of Samuels' second adjournment, ESPN NewYork.com reported the prosecution and defense could still be in discussions for a plea.
