USC Criminal Defense Theories

Today's LA Times has Pete Carroll's cornerback Shareece Wright declining a plea bargain, reduced from felony to misdemeanor obstruction of justice, with jail time on weekends only.  (This makes sure he doesn't miss a single lecture or lab.)  The facts of the case involve not leaving a residence when instructed by the police.

I am an inactive practice attorney and never practiced criminal law.  I do remember a bit from UCLA Law School.  I do know there are some attorneys on BN, so please help.  If you are getting big bucks from SC to defend its players (there are so many cases, I'm sure you are on a healthy retainer), what legal theory would you use to keep Shareece from behind bars? 

I will make some suggestions, but look forward from better ones from you.
