Richard Sherman was in a courtroom Friday to submit pleas over the five felony charges he faces after being arrested in Redmond, Washington earlier this week.
According to multiple reports, Sherman entered non-guilty pleas on all five charges. Sherman is charged second-degree misdemeanor with a domestic violence element, reckless endangerment of roadway personnel, drink-driving, resisting arrest, and malicious intent with a domestic violence element for attempted burglary of his in-laws’ home and driving violations way home.
Sherman appeared in court with his wife and made a statement earlier on Friday in which he called himself “deeply remorseful” for his actions as he vowed to “get the help” he needs for mental health issues.
Sherman is currently a free agent and the veteran cornerback’s chances of playing this season may depend on him taking the time to do that job as his lawsuit makes its way through the system. The 49ers, Sherman’s most recent team, offered support to Sherman and his family in the wake of his arrest this week.
