PROVO, Utah (AP) -- One of the former BYU football players charged as part of a rape investigation pleaded no contest today.

Billy Skinner was in court on charges of dealing in material harmful to a minor related to the alleged August incident.

Skinner pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of attempted dealing in harmful material to a minor.

The charges will be taken off his record if Skinner doesn't possess pornography or violate any laws in the next six months.

Skinner is one of two players who faced lesser charges in an investigation that led to rape charges against four teammates.

He was suspended from the team in December after the charges were announced and plans to transfer to a different school.
