A trial for suspended Oklahoma State basketball player Darrell Williams has been pushed back another week.
Williams, 22, is charged with four counts of rape by instrumentation and one count of sexual battery.
His trial was scheduled to begin July 2, but Tuesday, the trial was postponed until July 9.
A witness for the state won’t be in the country until then, Payne County District Judge Phillip Corley said. The new start date also will prevent a trial interruption for Independence Day, he said.
