Welsh's NY DWI case adjourned until June

May 4, 2010 - 4:50 PM HEMPSTEAD, N.Y.(AP) -- A judge has adjourned the drunken driving case against former Hofstra men's basketball coach Tim Welsh until June 1.

Welsh has pleaded not guilty to aggravated driving while intoxicated and other charges following his arrest on Friday. He was stopped at a green light in Levittown at 1 a.m. when he was arrested. He is accused of having a blood-alcohol reading over 0.18, more than double the legal limit of 0.08.

Welsh has hired a new defense attorney, Ronald Beckoff, who declined to comment.

The 49-year-old Welsh resigned Monday, only a month after signing a five-year contract for $3 million at the Long Island school. Hofstra officials have yet to comment on a possible replacement for Welsh.

No one has shouted yet.
