New hearing set for Oklahoma State’s Williams

A judge entered a not guilty plea and set a new court date for

Oklahoma State forward Darrell Williams, who faces five felony

counts alleging he inappropriately touched two women at an

off-campus party.

District Judge Phillip Corley granted defense attorney Willie

Baker’s request Friday for a transcript of Williams’ preliminary

hearing to be produced for new co-counsel Cheryl Ramsey and

scheduled Williams’ next court date for July 22.

Corley entered a not guilty plea on Williams’ behalf on four

counts of rape by instrumentation and one count of sexual battery.

Williams previously pleaded not guilty to four of the counts before

an additional count of rape by instrumentation was added during his

preliminary hearing.

Williams, who started for the Cowboys last season as a junior,

has been suspended indefinitely.
