Why was Albert Haynesworth not at his own arraignment?

Albert Hayensworth pleased “not guilty”  in regards to his sexual hassasment suite filed against him in a DC court this week.  He did so remotely.  Haynesworth did not post, but his attorney did on his behalf.

But why was Hayensworth not here? He could be sentenced to a  maximum 180-day jail sentence and a fine of up to $1,000 (I am sure he can handle that).

Haynesworth’s attorney explains:

“He’s not in Washington,” Bolden said, when asked where his client was Tuesday.

“He’s got every right to waive his appearance under the law,” he continued. “It wasn’t a decision. It was his right, and he exercised his right. Nothing wrong with that.”
