Former Dodger Andrew Toles’ trespassing trial continued until Sept. 30
The attorney representing Andrew Toles was granted a continuance until Sept. 30 in the trespassing trial of the Dodgers outfielder in Key West, Fla. The case had been scheduled to go before a jury Aug. 17.
Toles was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor in June after police found him sleeping behind the Key West Airport. He faces up to a year in prison, a year of probation and a $1,000 fine is convicted. Toles was released from jail after a $500 bond was posted. He is being represented by Halford Schuhmacher, an attorney hired by Toles’ family. Schuhmacher has repeatedly declined to comment on the case.
Andrew Toles’ sister said his family was relieved when they learned he had been arrested last week: “We didn’t know whether he was dead or alive.”
Toles rose from the low minors to become the Dodgers’ starting left fielder in 2016, batting a career-high .314 and helping the team to the playoffs. He hasn’t played for the Dodgers since September 2018 but remains on the team’s restricted list.
Diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, he has been in and out of mental health facilities in the last year and a half.
