SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The lawyer for one of the former BYU football player charged with rape is accusing the prosecution of purposely withholding evidence.

The attorney for Ibrahim Rashada who is one of the four players accused of gang raping a 17-year-old girl back in August filed a motion yesterday.

He asked the judge to order prosecutors to provide the defense with all their evidence in case.

The attorney says although he has asked the state numerous time for all the discovery evidence he still hasn't received several things. Those include DNA, forensic test results and photos of physical trauma to the alleged victim.

Despite the defense's claim, the prosecution says they have provided all the discovery evidence.

Rashada faces two first degree felony counts of aggravated sexual assault.
