Steven Haney, attorney for former runner Christian Dawkins, told ESPN that his client is preparing for trial in April and won't take a plea deal. "I believe there is conduct in this case that is not charged in the indictment and that needs to come out. We want the truth to come out and it will come out.” Co-defendant Merl Code, a former Adidas consultant, is also expected to go to trial.
