McCarney's trial set for June
Mar 31, 2009 (The Gazette - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Jillian McCarney is scheduled to stand trial in June for allegedly assaulting a police officer and interfering with official acts.
McCarney, the daughter of former Iowa State University football coach Dan McCarney, pleaded not guilty to the charges earlier this month and filed a motion waiving her right to a speedy trial.
Online court records show the pretrial conference -- previously set for April 29 -- has been pushed back to May 27. If a plea agreement isn't reached, the case will go to trial June 8.
McCarney, 21, of 200 S. Linn St. No. 5, Iowa City, was arrested for striking, verbally abusing and threatening an Iowa City police officer at McCarney's residence around 11:45 p.m. Feb. 14. Officers were called to McCarney's apartment on a report that she and her roommates were keeping a disorderly house.
McCarney reportedly swore at Iowa City Police Officer Gabriel Cook before striking him with her left shoulder and trying to kick him.
After telling officers she was Dan McCarney's daughter and that he would take physical action on them, she reportedly threatened the officer repeatedly and told him that all of her charges would be dropped because her name is "McCarney" and they have "a lot of money."
McCarney's attorney, Davis Foster, told The Gazette earlier this month that the disorderly house charge has been "placed on the back burner" until the assault case is resolved.
