Coach Martin says no decision will be made until the conclusion of his trial. He repeatedly says James is an awesome kid. He also said JT was not going to enroll until the fall semester anyway.

Sounds like CM is sticking behind the young man. Hopefully he's a Gamecock sooner than later.

This could go either way. I suppose July 2nd is actually August 2nd...

USC signee James Thompson was in court this week, will be back next week

June 25, 2014 by Kevin McCrarey
James Thompson will be in court next week.

USC basketball signee James Thompson made a court appearance yesterday where a judge filed a six month restraining order to keep him away from his girlfriend and her family. Thompson was arrested earlier this month after an alleged altercation with his longtime girlfriend. Police charged him with aggravated second-degree battery and domestic abuse battery. He will be in court to face those charges July 2nd.
According to the police report, Thompson “punched the victim in the eye, slapped her in the face several times and threw things at her, causing pain and bruising to her chin, on her leg, her eye and to the back of her right thigh.” The incident allegedly was triggered by an Instagram post. The alleged victim’s family showed police pictures of the injuries, which led to the charges.
Thompson’s coach at Parkview Baptist, Don Green, and the alleged victims family have both confirmed a long history of issues between the two parties. According to the girl’s aunt, who reached out to SportsTalk Wednesday morning and will not be named here for privacy reasons, Green was shown pictures of the bruises on the girl stemming from an altercation with Thompson prior to his arrest. She said Green prayed with them and said he would tell Thompson to stay clear of the girl. Earlier this month Green told SportsTalk that Thompson and the girl have a history of getting “sideways” with each other, but added the last he heard they will still hanging around each other. Today Green told SportsTalk he has not talked to Thompson in two weeks.
Shortly after Thompson’s arrest, USC issued a statement indicating it was aware of the charges and in the process of gathering more information. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Frank Martin will wait until after the July 2nd court date to decide if he will honor Thompson’s scholarship. The source is under the impression that Martin will cut ties with Thompson if any of the allegations are proven to be true.
According to the aunt, as of now, the alleged victim does not plan on dropping the charges. “She told me ‘no’ last night when I asked her if she was going to drop the charges.” The aunt admitted that fact could change given the history between her niece and Thompson. “Right now I just wish he would go [to Columbia]. That way they wouldn’t be around each other anymore.”
Thompson, a 6-foot-9, 215 forward, is ranked as the number two recruit out of Louisiana. He chose USC over LSU, Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Oklahoma.

Glad to see we are letting the courts do their thing.
Also liked reading that it appears if they charges are true, Martin is dropping him.

I want to win, but not with players like that (if these charges are confirmed).

I agree; if he's found guilty of hitting his girlfriend we don't need him at USC. I'd rather lose with good kids than win with bad ones.

Hi guys, I'm new and hope to contribute to the board. Ready for football also!

The sad part with this is when it comes to a domestic situation, feelings are involved. It's hard to separate from that person. I think that's why the aunt said she thought the girl would drop the charges. It's a shame that this happened, and I think the best thing that could happen for James Thompson would for him to be able to get out of that town and far away from that girl. Obviously, if he's guilty he deserves the punishment that his actions lead to.

Sounds to me like they are in a mutually abusive relationship.

Nothing. It's hard to get in touch with Thompson and his coach after this happened.

He entered a plea of not guilty and his case is set for status conference on October 23 at 9:30.

Not looking like he'll make it in.

According to Jamie Shaw over at Verbal Commits (also posts on TBS frequently which is where this info came from), "the staff is fully aware of the situation and all happenings."
They think Thompson will be on campus this year but he may not be able to play this year due to the timing of all the court stuff. Another poster on there with reliable inside info confirmed this. In other words, things are looking up here.
