Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — The lawyer for suspended LSU players, Jordan Jefferson and Josh Johns, confirms the case will go to a grand jury Wednesday.
That means evidence will be heard to see if the case will move forward. Late last week, Lewis Unglesby filed a motion asking to speed up the process.
Unglesby also said today the DNA has come back from the crime lab and it's "inconclusive".
Investigators took DNA from Jefferson, along with nearly 50 pairs of shoes, were taken from the former starting quarter back's apartment late last month. Just days after Jefferson and Johns were charged with felony second degree battery.
Lance Unglesby, Lewis Unglesby's brother and law partner said in a response to NBC33:
"The absence of Lowery's DNA on Jordan's shoe supports our position that Jordan will be cleared. We are glad the results of the DNA testing came back in a timely manner. As we have maintained from the beginning, Jordan should not have been arrested."
The grand jury hearing is set to start on Wednesday.
