Jefferson's lawyer to ask Miles for QB's reinstatement wire reports

BATON ROUGE, La. -- The lawyer for Jordan Jefferson says he will ask the university and coach Les Miles on Tuesday to consider lifting the LSU quarterback's suspension while the legal process plays out in the case of a recent bar brawl involving numerous LSU players.

Defense attorney Lewis Unglesby says he does not want to tell Miles how to discipline players, only to make the case that the arrest warrant police obtained for Jefferson is without merit and by itself should not be allowed to ruin his senior season.

Unglesby says Jefferson doesn't deserve special treatment from the legal system because he's LSU's quarterback. However, Unglesby contends Jefferson is receiving unfair treatment by authorities because of his high-profile position.

LSU vice chancellor for communications Herb Vincent says the school has no comment.
