Stokes’ trial for alleged assault on Elvis impersonator delayed


The trial of Celtic striker Anthony Stokes, for an alleged assault on an Elvis impersonator in June 2013, has been adjourned despite lawyers acting on behalf of the Irish striker said they were ready to proceed with the hearing.

Judge Patricia Ryan said that she would adjourn the case, at Dublin’s Circuit Criminal Court, until May 12th but could not guarantee that it would start then.

Stokes has been remanded on bail since last year, following his arrest and charge with assault to Anthony Bradley at Buck Whaley’s nightclub on Leeson Street, Dublin.
