Davidson County Criminal Court Judge Monte Watkins has set June 19 as the trial date for Brandon E. Banks, the third former Vanderbilt student and football player charged in the rape of an unconscious woman in 2013. Banks has pleaded not guilty to five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery, the Tennessean reports. His case has been on hold while two other defendants went to trial. They were both found guilty and sentenced to prison. Banks' lawyer said plea negotiations will continue as the case moves toward trial.
