Husker running back Maurice Washington had his plea hearing in California continued until July Wednesday morning.

Washington is facing charges under California’s revenge porn law, as well as possession of child pornography. He is accused of keeping and sending a video of his ex-girlfriend’s reported sexual assault to her, along with the message “remember this hoe”. The video was taken while the victim was a minor.

According to a spokesperson in Santa Clara County Superior Court, a public defender appeared for Washington in court at 9:45 a.m.

Washington was scheduled to enter a plea, but due to a pending discovery request, the plea hearing has been continued to July 25.

According to court documents, the sexual assault featured two mutual friends of Washington and the victim. However, Washington did not record the video or take part in the alleged assault.
