hope solo 600x389 Hope Solo Court Trial Set For November, Wont Interfere With World Cup Qualifying

A November date has been set for the trial of U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo, who is accused of assaulting her half-sister and 17-year-old nephew.

Solo appeared in Kirkland, Washington court Monday following two counts of fourth degree domestic violence in June. She has pleaded not guilty.

Solo’s lawyer has said the 33-year-old goalkeeper was a victim in the altercation. According to KOMO-TV, her lawyers have filed a motion to dismiss the case.

A Nov. 4 trial date means Solo will not miss time with her club, Seattle Reign FC, who recently celebrated finishing first in the NWSL regular season standings.

U.S. 2015 World Cup qualifying closes out Oct. 26 meaning that Solo’s legal troubles will not interfere and should be able to retain her number one starting spot.
