Jurors are expected to begin a third day of deliberations in the case of a former University of Iowa football player charged with sexual abuse.
The jury is considering whether former Hawkeyes defensive back Cedric Everson is guilty of third-degree sexual abuse or two lesser charges in an alleged 2007 assault of a female athlete in a dorm room.
Prosecutors say Everson assaulted the woman while she was asleep. His attorney argued the two had consensual sex but the woman doesn't remember because she had been drinking.
Jurors started deliberating Tuesday afternoon and met all day Wednesday without reaching a verdict. They asked to review the video testimony of a friend of the woman who took her to the hospital. Judge Paul Miller denied the request.
