California judge signs warrant for Nebraska RB Washington
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A California judge has signed an arrest warrant for Maurice Washington, clearing the way for the Nebraska running back to return to his home state to face charges accusing him of distributing a video of his former girlfriend being sexually assaulted by two other people in 2016.
Washington’s attorney, John Ball, says the player will voluntarily appear in court and is not expected to be arrested.
Ball also says he is in discussions with the prosecutor about possible resolutions.
Washington is accused of obtaining a video of the assault from one of the perpetrators, storing it on his cellphone and sending it to the girl last March. He has been charged with a felony count of possessing a video or photograph of a person under 18 who is engaging in or simulating sexual conduct and a misdemeanor count of distributing that video without consent, leading to the person suffering emotional distress.
