University of Akron starting point guard Alex Abreu appeared in court Wednesday afternoon in connection with drug trafficking charges.
Abreu's attorney Bob Meeker spoke to AkronNewsNow.com,saying his client is anxious to see what direction the case is going to go.
"Hopefully by April 24 there will be some direction to this case," Meeker said.
The charges are stemming from a March incident where Abreu allegedly accepted a delivery of five pounds of marijuana from an undercover police officer leading to his arrest. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Meeker says he'll be continuing to look at the prosecution's case before Abreu's second pretrial date.
"I'll be talking with the prosecutor, I'll be reading the discovery, and I'll be determining a course for the case to travel," he said.
Abreu is currently free on a $5,000 bond. He along with co-defendant 18-year old Austin Durgala will appear before Judge Mary Margaret Rowlands April 24 at 1p.m. Durgala has also pleaded not guilty.
