Former UW football player reaches plea deal in sexual battery case (1 Viewer)

LARAMIE — Carl Granderson has struck a deal with prosecutors in a criminal case, the former Wyoming football player indicated in court documents filed just days before he was set to go to trial.

According to the documents, filed Wednesday in Albany County District Court, Granderson has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors. The New Orleans Saints signee requested a hearing where he can change his pleas and be sentenced. He will ask a judge to cancel the jury trial that was scheduled to begin Monday.

The change-of-plea and sentencing proceedings are scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday, a court clerk said.

Granderson in April pleaded not guilty to one count of third-degree sexual assault and one count of sexual battery, but according to a notice of intent to change plea filed on his behalf by his attorney, Megan Overmann Goetz, Granderson intends to change that “in accordance with the terms” of the agreement, which are not disclosed in court filings.
