IOWA CITY (AP) - The trial of a former University of Iowa football player accused of sexual abuse has been delayed until next year.

Johnson County court documents show Abe Satterfield's trial will be get underway April 12.

His attorney, Alfredo Parrish, filed a motion last month seeking a continuance. He'd cited issues including the time needed to review an expert opinion on drug and alcohol consumption.

Parrish also said some witnesses couldn't testify if the trial began as planned this month.

Satterfield and former teammate Cedric Everson are accused of assaulting a woman in 2007.

Satterfield is charged with second- and third-degree sexual abuse. Everson is charged with second-degree sexual abuse. His trial is scheduled for Nov. 2.

Both have pleaded not guilty.
