Journell, Matthew Dunton and Matthew Brady were scheduled to appear in Montgomery County General District Court for a preliminary hearing Thursday afternoon, but it has been pushed back for a second time to May 21 at 2 p.m at the request of the Commonwealth’s Attorney.
The hearing originally was supposed to take place Feb. 23.
Prosecutors say Journell, Dunton and Brady entered the house of then-Hokies basketball player Dorenzo Hudson and Sean Allen in December seeking marijuana they said was stolen from Dunton.
Because an air-pressured BB gun was involved, it raised the charges against the three to a Class 2 felony.
Journell remains indefinitely suspended from the football team, per Virginia Tech policy, until the felony charge is dropped, dismissed or resolved.
