Voynov pre-trial, trial dates set

Slava Voynov pleaded not guilty to a felony domestic violence charge for the second time this month during an arraignment at the Torrance branch of the Los Angeles Superior Court earlier today.

A pre-trial hearing has been set for January 28 with the trial slated to open on March 2.

Today’s short court appearance set the clock moving towards a trial. The 60-day window allows both sides to prepare their cases in advance of jury selection on March 2.

Voynov, who was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence on the morning of October 20, will miss his 31st consecutive game tonight.
