Iowa State Football Player Pleads Not Guilty
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The attorney for Iowa State defensive back David Sims has entered a not guilty plea on his behalf to a charge of unauthorized use of a credit card, an aggravated misdemeanor.
Online court records show Sims' plea was filed Thursday along with a waiver of his right to a preliminary hearing.
Sims' attorney, Matthew Boles, did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment Friday.
Sims, a senior and one of the Cyclones' top players, is accused of charging gas, groceries and more than $400 worth of shoes on the debit card of a Des Moines woman. She had loaned the card to her son before he visited Ames earlier this month. Police told her Sims reportedly found the card on a sidewalk.
