PROVO, Utah (AP) -- One of the four former Brigham Young University football players indicted last week on charges of aggravated sexual assault is scheduled to face a jury trial in January.
Karland Bennett pleaded not guilty Thursday, and a jury trial was scheduled to start Jan. 3.
A bail hearing for Bennett and Ibrahim Rashada is scheduled for Tuesday. Another man charged in the case, B.J. Mathis. turned himself in Thursday. A fourth man will be tried in juvenile court.
All three of the adults were being held on $100,000 cash bail.
Last Friday, Utah County Attorney Kay Bryson announced that a grand jury had indicted Rashada, Mathis, Bennett and the youth on two counts of aggravated sexual assault, count of dealing harmful material and of furnishing alcohol to a minor and a count of obstruction of justice.
The County Attorney's Office also has separately charged former player Antwaun Harris with a felony count of false or inconsistent material statements, and former player Billy Skinner with a felony count of dealing harmful material to a minor.
The charges stem from an allegation by a 17-year-old girl that she had been raped in August by several men in a Provo apartment.
