DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) -Former NBA player Keon Clark received a March date for a new trial on felony drug and weapons charges.
The 32-year-old from Danville was given a new trial because he lacked legal representation when he was sentenced in absentia this fall to 2 1/2 years in prison.
During a brief hearing Thursday in Vermilion County, a judge set Clark's new trial for March 12.
Clark last played for the Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns.
He was arrested this fall after U.S. Marshals got a tip that he was on a bus leaving Houston. He was arrested on several Illinois charges, including not having a firearm owner's identification card and possession of a controlled substance.
