OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Maurice Washington is back in court today, facing child pornography and revenge porn charges in California.
An arrest warrant was originally signed in February by a California judge. He is accused of sending a video to his former girlfriend depicting her being sexually assaulted. Washington did not record the video, nor does he appear in it.
Our partners at the Omaha World-Herald report that Washington will continue to play for the Huskers - a decision made in conjunction with university and athletic department officials.
3 News Now Reporter Phil Bergman says the matter will be continued in October:
The preliminary examination setting date will determine what day they should examine the evidence. On a separate date afterwards, they will examine the evidence and then a judge can decide whether they should move forward with the case.— Phil Bergman (@PhilBergmanTV) September 3, 2019
