LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Husker running back Maurice Washington makes his second court appearance in California today.

Washington was originally served an arrest warrant back in February on two charges of child pornography after sending a video to a former girlfriend.

In his first court appearance back in April, Washington pleaded not guilty to a felony charge and a misdemeanor charge in relation to the video. The felony charge is possession of a video of a person under 18 engaging in sexual conduct, and the misdemeanor charge is sharing a recording without the person's consent, according to our partners at the Omaha World-Herald.

Washington was not in the video, nor did he record it. The video was recorded back in 2016.

The World-Herald also reports that Washington has been a limited participant in spring practice and didn't play in Nebraska's spring game.
