LARAMIE — A jury trial is set to begin July 15 in former Wyoming football player Carl Granderson’s sexual assault case, according to documents filed this week in Albany County District Court.

Granderson, who’s facing one count of third-degree sexual assault and one count of sexual battery, was arraigned April 12. He has pleaded not guilty, according to court clerks.

The charges, which were filed against Granderson in February, stem from an alleged incident that occurred at an off-campus apartment in November just days after Wyoming’s final game of the 2018 season. In an affidavit of probable cause, two alleged female victims, identified only as Victim 1 and Victim 2, accused Granderson of touching them sexually without their consent.

Granderson, a two-time all-Mountain West selection, is widely considered to be the Cowboys’ top prospect for this year’s NFL Draft, which begins Thursday.
