New trial hearing for convicted Oklahoma State University basketball player scheduled for Friday

STILLWATER, Okla. — Convicted former Oklahoma State University basketball player Darrell Williams could get a new trial Friday or the hearing could be moved again.

This is the fourth time his sentencing has been rescheduled as the defense, prosecution and court prepare to deal with a motion for new trial that involves new evidence.

Williams, 23, was convicted on July 23 of two counts of rape by instrumentation and a count of sexual battery after two women testified he sexually touched them at a house party in 2010. A Payne County jury recommended no prison time on the sexual battery conviction and one-year sentences for each of the rape counts.

Defense attorneys William Baker and Cheryl Ramsey filed a motion for a new trial Aug. 23, the day before Williams was scheduled to be sentenced.
