TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -Alabama cornerback Simeon Castille is appealing his conviction on disorderly conduct charges and is seeking a jury trial, one of his attorneys said Thursday.
Municipal Court Judge Madelene Hollingsworth on Wednesday ordered Castille to pay a $150 fine and $300 in court costs for the charge stemming from his arrest in an off-campus area called The Strip.
Castille appealed the conviction to Tuscaloosa Circuit Court, said Roy McCord, one of his attorneys.
``He says he's not guilty, and so we're going to try it in front of a jury,'' said McCord, a Gadsden attorney. ``I think we'll be much more comfortable having it in front of a jury of his peers.''
Castille, a senior, was accused of shouting and cussing at passengers of a sport utility vehicle and challenging them to fight him as he stood in a street about 2 a.m. on Aug. 19. Castille has said he was joking with teammates in the SUV.
The judge ruled that his behavior constituted disorderly conduct regardless of his intent.
Castille, who was not suspended by coach Nick Saban, finished with 39 tackles, two interceptions and a team-high 10 pass breakups. He was a preseason first-team All-Southeastern Conference pick.
