Andy Kennedy case nears end

The assault case against former University of Cincinnati head basketball coach Andy Kennedy, now at the University of Mississippi, will be resolved Monday, his lawyer said this morning.
In a phone interview, former Hamilton County Prosecutor Mike Allen declined to elaborate on that statement. He also would not confirm or deny reports from two Mississippi newspapers that Kennedy will plead guilty to a lesser charge and not stand trial.
The case is scheduled for a jury trial Monday before Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Dwayne Mallory, court records show.
