Nebraska sophomore running back Maurice Washington had his plea hearing bumped back several weeks in California court Wednesday morning.
The hearing was continued until July 25 because of a pending discovery request, a Santa Clara County Superior Court spokesman said.
Washington is facing two charges, including a felony, related to a sexually explicit video that he allegedly sent to a former girlfriend. The girl appears in the video and was 15 at the time it was made. Washington is not in the video and did not record it.
Washington was first charged in the case in mid-February. The new July court date is one week before the Huskers are to open preseason camp.
