Utah Jazz: Assistant Sidney Lowe has new court date for tax-evasion charges on July 31
Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News
SALT LAKE CITY — For the second time, Sidney Lowe has a new date in court.
The Utah Jazz assistant coach has been rescheduled to appear in a Wake Forest, N.C., court on July 31 to deal with legal issues surrounding his arrest on Feb. 18 on charges of not filing and paying North Carolina state income taxes from 2009-11.
Lowe was originally scheduled for a court appearance in March, but that was pushed back to Wednesday so he could continue coaching the Jazz this past season. It was not specified why the case was continued again.
Lowe is being represented by North Carolina-based attorney Lee Turner.
On Feb. 18, Lowe was arrested and booked into the Wake County Jail while on vacation at his North Carolina home. The state's Department of Revenue claimed he owed an unspecified amount for that three-year period during which he reportedly earned about $900,000 annually for coaching North Carolina State.
The 53-year-old was charged with three misdemeanors and released on a $10,000 bond before returning to Utah. Two days later, Lowe issued an apology through his lawyer. At the time, Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said the Jazz "support him wholeheartedly."
