UW football player Quintez Cephus was bound over for trial at a preliminary hearing today in Dane County Circuit Court.
Prosecutors say Cephus sexually assaulted two women at his campus apartment on Spring Street in the early morning of April 22. Authorities say Cephus had recently become acquainted with the women, who had been drinking at a downtown bar prior to going with Cephus and fellow Badger football player Danny Davis to Cephus' apartment.
A motion to dismiss the second-degree sexual assault charge was denied.
Prosecutors say both women were intoxicated, with one victim objecting to Cephus' sex acts, and the other unaware of the sexual contact. Court records state Davis photographed one of the nude victims.But as part of a court motion asking for the second-degree sex crime to be dismissed, Cephus' attorney Stephen Meyer maintained surveillance camera photos from Cephus' apartment and submitted to the court dispute the victim's level of insobriety.The photos show what Meyer says are the women respectively standing outside Cephus' apartment, and scaling stairs in his building's lobby. Meyer maintains there's no sign of intoxicated instability.Cephus has been suspended from the football team indefinitely, while Davis has a two-game suspension. Davis faces no criminal charges at this time.
