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, who was underage, depicting her performing oral sex. 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
Since it's taking at least four meetings over four months just to set a date to look over evidence, I would not expect anything big to happen with Washington's case until after the #Huskers season is over.— Phil Bergman (@PhilBergmanTV) September 3, 2019
