Tunsil Update

The Daily Journal has confirmed that domestic violence charges against Laremy Tunsil and his stepfather are likely to be dropped.

There has been no immediate response from Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze.

Tunsil had a court appearance scheduled for Monday, but his attorney, Steve Farese, believes the case will be settled by then.

In late June Tunsil turned himself into Lafayette County authorities after an altercation with Lindsey Miller, his stepfather. Tunsil was charged with domestic violence-simple assault, a misdemeanor.

The altercation between Tunsil and Miller came about because of an argument between Miller and Tunsil’s mother, Desiree Tunsil.

At the time Freeze praised Tunsil for protecting his family but said Tunsil realized he could have handled the situation differently.

Miller was later charged with domestic violence as well. Miller, represented by Matthew Wilson of Starkville, currently has a trial date set for Sept. 12.

Miller was late gaining legal representation. He served as his own counsel in the only court appearance this case has had, July 14 in Oxford.
