Osuna's Court Case Put Over

Roberto Osuna's court case has been put over to September 5th.

His lawyer, Domenic Basile, said Wednesday that he continues to have productive closed-door meetings with the Crown.

Basile hopes the matter can be resolved through a peace bond, with charges withdrawn, by next month.

If a peace bond isn't on th table and the case ends up going to tiral, he says his client would plead not guilty.

Basile is also taking issue with comments from the general manager of his client's new team, the Houston Astros.

He was traded to the Houston Astros on Monday and the general manager Jeff Luhnow said the club is ''confident that Osuna is remorseful, has willfully complied with all consequences related to his past behavior'' and has proactively engaged in counseling.

''I think he's remorseful that the circumstances are what they are,'' Basile said. ''But at the end of the day in the criminal court, his intention is to plead not guilty.''

Osuna, 23,  was arrested in May and charged in a domestic violence case.
