Jackson has preliminary hearing on Aug. 13

Associated Press

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan defensive back Marlin Jackson pleaded not guilty to charges that he hit a man in the eye with a bottle, causing an injury that required 17 stitches.

If convicted of the felonious assault and aggravated assault charges, the second-team All-American could face up to four years in prison and a $2,000 fine.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Aug. 13, Chief Assistant Prosecutor Joseph Burke said Tuesday.

Burke declined to discuss the case. A police report said a 26-year-old man accused Jackson of striking him with a bottle in the right eye June 1.

Jackson was selected the preseason defensive player of the year in the Big Ten. The junior from Sharon, Pa., had 98 tackles and six interceptions in his first two years with the Wolverines.
