Nebraska defensive end faces court date for exposing himself
[dropcap]N[/dropcap]ebraska defensive end Avery Moss will go to trial in July, charged with exposing himself to a female student employee at a residence hall convenience store.
Moss appeared in court on Friday where he pleaded not guilty to charges of public indecency, disturbing the peace, and failing to appear for a January court date, according to an Omaha World-Herald report.
The 6-foot-2, 270-pound Moss saw action in three games as a true freshman last season before suffering a shoulder injury. He underwent surgery and was awarded a medical hardship.
Following spring practice, Moss was considered the leader for a starting job at defensive end as a redshirt freshman this fall.
The public indecency and disturbing the peace charges stem from a December 2012 complaint filed by a female employee of the Knoll C-Store, located inside an on-campus residence hall. On Dec. 15, the employee claimed a man exposed himself to her at the convenience store on two separate occasions, four hours apart.
The employee did not know Moss, but later identified him via photo, a UNL Police spokesman told the World-Herald.
All three charges are misdemeanors. The public indecency a Class 2 misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine, while the other two charges are both Class 3 misdemeanors.
Moss was a 3-star recruit out of Corona del Sol High School in Tempe, Ariz. in the 2012 class.
