But of course.
A member of the Nebraska football program, defensive end Avery Moss (pictured, No. 94), has a trial date set for late July for an incident that occurred late last year, the Omaha World-Herald is reporting. Moss is facing a July 23 bench trial on charges of public indecency, disturbing the peace and failing to appear.
The soon-to-be sophomore has pleaded not guilty to the three charges, all of which are considered misdemeanors. The failure-to-appear charge stemmed from a missed court date back in January
In mid-December, a female employee of a convenience store accused Moss of twice exposing himself to her in the span of four hours. The alleged victim filed a complaint with the university police department, and subsequently picked Moss out of a photo lineup.
Cornhuskers head coach Bo Pelini is aware of the situation involving Moss, who could face up to six months in jail if convicted.
As a three-star member of NU’s 2012 recruiting class, Moss played in three games before using his redshirt as a true freshman due to a shoulder injury. Moss was expected to continue competing for a starting job in summer camp, although it’s unclear what if any impact his legal situation will have on that front.
