RENTON – Running back Marshawn Lynch was present for the Seahawks’ workout Tuesday after he was absent last Monday from the team’s voluntary workout.

Guard John Moffitt, however, was absent to attend a hearing for the two misdemeanor charges he’s facing for trespassing and obstruction of law enforcement. There was a hearing in Bellevue District Court on Tuesday afternoon.

Moffitt’s agent, Mike George, said the two charges stem from a 2012 incident at Bellevue Square. Well, actually two incidents. In the first one, Moffitt was seen urinating in public by one of the mall’s security guards. He was given a no-trespassing order and told not to return to Bellevue Square. A couple of months later, Moffitt was seen at a restaurant in Bellevue Square by a security guard, who reported Moffitt. The misdemeanor charges resulted from that second incident.

“It involves a college-type misjudgment,” said George, Moffitt’s agent. “He mistakenly went back to a restaurant that happened to be in the Bellevue mall property.”

Tuesday’s hearing in Bellevue was a scheduling hearing where both sides discussed the merits of the case. The next hearing is scheduled for mid-June.

The only other Seahawk who was not on the field was defensive end Chris Clemons, who is recovering from knee surgery.
