Jordan De Goey Court case in New York City, assault charges, resignation, future, fate, Collingwood Magpies statement

The case of Collingwood star Jordan De Goey has been adjourned until next year after appearing in New York Criminal Court Thursday morning via a video link from Melbourne Magistrates Court (AEDT) to deal with assault charges.

It stems from an alleged incident at a Manhattan nightclub on a party in October where De Goey and his friend Luke Dyson were arrested.

De Goey, 25, who had previously pleaded not guilty, appeared in court on Thursday wearing a tie, white-collar shirt and black jacket and was represented by his lawyer Jacob Kaplan.

Judge John Zhuo Wang has granted that De Goey will return to court for a schedule of motions on January 4, which he can attend remotely before he finds out his fate on January 18.

He faces four counts, including assault with intent to injure.

It comes after De Goey had the original ‘forced touching’ charge dropped by New York City police, as he was dismissed from his post by Collingwood last month while court proceedings unfolded.

The Magpies confirmed in a statement Thursday morning that De Goey would remain removed from his post.

“A procedural hearing this morning of the charges against Jordan De Goey in the United States determined that the case will continue into the New Year,” the statement said.

“Collingwood continues to assess the course of the case against Jordan and awaits significant developments which will allow for a fuller examination of the facts. Until then, Jordan will remain suspended.

“Collingwood officials met with Jordan earlier this week and he will continue to be paid in full during his resignation and to receive welfare services through the club.”

De Goey traveled to the United States during the offseason to participate in a fitness program in California under his sponsorship with Monster Energy.

He leaves his contract at the end of the 2022 season when he is about to enter free agency.
