Two University of Texas football players charged with sexual assault and suspended indefinitely from the team were set to appear in court on Tuesday.
AUSTIN, Texas -- Two University of Texas football players charged with sexual assault and suspended indefinitely from the team were set to appear in court on Tuesday.
Montrel Meander and Kendall Sanders each face one charge of second-degree felony sexual assault, which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison. Sanders also faces a charge of improper photography.
Meander's court date was reset for October, but Sanders attorney is still set to appear on Tuesday. It's unknown if Sanders himself will appear.
The men are accused of sexually assaulting a female student on June 21 in an on-campus dorm room. Court documents say the men assaulted the female student in the San Jacinto Residence Hall when they got home after a night on Sixth Street.
A Travis County judge released the men on a personal bond after their arrests, so they didn't have to put up any money for their release. Sources tell KVUE News the judge did that because the suspects cooperated with the investigation.
Montrell and Sanders can not have any contact with the alleged victim. They are also banned from the dorm and will have to go through the university disciplinary judicial process.
