VERMILLION, S. D. – Two from the University of South Dakota football players have pleaded not guilty to sexual assault charges.
KSFY-TV reports that Danny Rambo and Dale Williamson appeared in court Thursday in their pleadings.
Rambo is charged with the crime of rape and Williamson with the crime of attempted rape.
A woman told the police that Rambo and Williamson came into a bedroom where they have consensual sex with another player and assaulted her Oct. 22 at the off-campus of the place of residence of the three players shared.
All three players have been suspended indefinitely from the team.
Williamson’s attorney asked to withdraw from the case, citing a busy work, but the Judge Cheryle Gering denied the request after Williamson said that he wanted the lawyer to continue.
Williamson is also facing separate rape charges stemming from another alleged attack.
