A former University of Tennessee football player charged with rape will be tried separately from his suspended ex-teammate, the Associated Press reports. Stephen Ross Johnson, an attorney for former linebacker A.J. Johnson, says his client has been given a Sept. 29 trial date. Michael Williams, a former defensive back, will report on the original trial date of Aug. 24. Both were indicted on two counts of aggravated rape after being named as suspects in a November 2014 incident and have pleaded not guilty. WDEF News 12 has the story.
