Ex-UI player Seeks Delay in Sex Assault Trial


By Aaron Hepker

IOWA CITY (AP) - One of two former University of Iowa football players charged with sexual abuse has filed a motion to delay his trial.

Online court records show Cedric Everson's attorney, Leon Spies filed the motion for the continuance on Friday. Spies also waived Everson's right to a trial within one year.

The 19-year-old is scheduled to go to trial on June 1. He and Abe Satterfield are accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a dormitory room in October 2007. They are both charged with second-degree sexual abuse. Satterfield faces an additional charge of third-degree sexual abuse.

The two men are being tried separately.
