MADISON (WKOW) — In a brief arraignment hearing Thursday morning in Dane County Circuit Court, suspended Badger receiver Quintez Cephus pleaded not guilty in his sexual assault case.
His attorneys were granted 30 days to file additional motions.
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.
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.
Cephus has been suspended from the football team indefinitely, while Davis servied a two-game suspension. Davis faces no criminal charges at this time.
