Suspended Michigan wide receiver Grant Perry has waived a preliminary hearing in his sexual assault trial, according to MLive. The report says Perry is set to stand trial on March 29.
Perry faces four charges stemming from an alleged sexual assault that took place on Oct. 15 in East Lansing, Mich. According to a police report, a woman alleged Perry groped her at a downtown bar, and he fled from police.
Perry, a sophomore who turned 20 last month, is facing a felony charge of assaulting, battering, resisting or obstructing an officer; two misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree sexual assault; and a misdemeanor charge of underage drinking.
He has denied “any and all” sexual misconduct allegations.
Perry initially was suspended for two games after the incident, but he was allowed to return to the team for its final four regular-season games. Perry then was suspended ahead of the Orange Bowl and remains suspended indefinitely.
