Defense attorney Tony Coleman said Wednesday that prosecutors are expected to refile the charge as a single misdemeanor count of domestic abuse. Coleman declined further comment.
Liggins was originally charged with two counts of kidnapping, two counts of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, three counts of domestic abuse in the presence of a minor and one count of violating a protective order. He was arrested Aug. 31 after his girlfriend told police he attacked her in front of their 2-year-old son.
Liggins now plays for the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League.
