Titus Young Excused After 'No-Show' At Court

Tuesday was supposed to be another court hearing for former Lions receiver Titus Young. However, for the second consecutive court date, he didn’t show up.

The judge on the case, Orange County Superior Court Judge Andre Manssourian said to Young’s lawyer, Altus W. Hudson II,

 I see your client is not behind you.

Young is suffering from multiple concussions he got from the NFL, and a couple of months ago, his own father thought he was dealing with some sort of mental health disorder. He is currently getting treatment, and it is unknown at this time if he is undergoing this treatment at a residential facility or if he’s getting it some place else.

Manssourian is keeping a $100,000 bench warrant for Young though. Basically a bench warrant implies that Young currently isn’t seen as a fugitive for not showing up, however he might be subject to arrest if he fails to show up for his next hearing in early August.

Young is facing up to 10 years in prison for 11 counts of burglary, attempted burglary, and assaulting police officers. He could also be facing charges for Driving Under the Influence.
