Ferentz to testify at hearing for former players

Posted:

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Among the witnesses set to testify at a hearing on sex abuse charges against two former University of Iowa football players is head coach Kirk Ferentz.

Abe Satterfield and Cedric Everson are accused of sexually assaulting a female student last October in Hillcrest Residence Hall. Twenty-year-old Satterfield is charged with second- and third-degree sexual abuse while 19-year-old Everson faces a charge of second-degree sex abuse.

They are scheduled to appear Thursday in Johnson County District Court.

The hearing will focus on whether the former players should have separate trials. The judge is also expected to decide whether statements they made to Ferentz and other athletics officials should be admitted at trial.

Trial is scheduled for Nov. 3.
