Sentencing of OSU basketball player delayed

STILLWATER — A Payne County judge has delayed the sentencing of Oklahoma State basketball player Darrell Williams on rape convictions.

Judge Phillip Corley on Wednesday postponed Friday's scheduled sentencing until Sept. 28.

The delay comes while Corley considers a defense motion for a new trial. Defense attorneys say they have new evidence that could have changed the outcome of the trial — but have declined comment.

The motion was sealed by Corley.

Williams was convicted in July of sexual battery and rape. The jury recommended a one-year prison sentence on each of the rape counts and no prison time on the battery conviction.

OSU coach Travis Ford testified that he believes Williams is not guilty. Ford said he will not comment further until after sentencing.
