HILLSBOROUGH, N. Wholesale Air Jordan 5 .C. -- A North Carolina football player charged with misdemeanor sexual battery and assault on a fellow student is scheduled for trial in December.During a brief court hearing Thursday morning, attorneys reserved the weeks of Dec. 5 and Dec. 12 for the case against Allen Artis, a junior reserve linebacker suspended indefinitely from the team.Afterward, Artis attorneys told reporters they would continue to fight the case and were concerned about damage to his reputation.Ill make that clear right now: We are not going to plead guilty to anything, said Steve Lindsay, an Asheville-based attorney. This man has done nothing wrong.Artis, who has been suspended indefinitely from the team, attended the hearing with his parents, an aunt and a godmother.In the front row sat the accuser, Delaney Robinson, and her attorney. The Associated Press typically doesnt identify people who say they are the victims of sexual assault, but Robinson held a Sept. 13 news conference, saying she had filed for the misdemeanor charges after police and prosecutors indicated there wasnt enough evidence to pursue felony charges.Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall has taken the lead on the misdemeanor case and has said it remains an ongoing investigation.According to an arrest warrant, Artis had sex with Robinson against her will in February when he should have reasonably known that the other person was mentally incapacitated and physically helpless. The warrant also said he pulled on her bra strap causing an indentation on her shoulder/back during the encounter.Robinson has said she had become intoxicated after being out with friends and was unable to consent to having sex. Her attorney, Denise Branch, has also criticized the way campus police handled a rape kit and the questioning of Artis, who is from Marietta, Georgia.Delaney Robinson is a rape victim, and she has chosen to exercise her rights as a victim to be involved in these legal proceedings, Branch said in a statement released after Thursdays hearing. We are pleased with the actions Mr. Woodall and his office have taken since Ms. Robinson had the courage to come forward.?Ms. Robinson remains resolute in her pursuit of justice.Artis met with a group of reporters Tuesday to make his first public comments on the allegations. He said the two had consensual sex and that he neither drugged nor raped her. Kerry Sutton, a Durham-based attorney who also is representing Artis, said he passed a polygraph test and reiterated that Thursday.I wanted you to see that he is not a mugshot, said Sutton, who later turned to Artis and said: Allen, tell them, did you rape her?I did not rape her, Artis repeated five times, pausing each time to turn and look into a different camera.Artis indefinitely suspension was the result of an automatic university policy when an athlete is charged with a misdemeanor. Any reinstatement would come after a review from athletic director Bubba Cunningham, head coach Larry Fedora and school officials.Artis has played in 27 career games as a reserve and on special teams with 20 tackles. He last practiced Sept. 11, two days before Robinsons news conference, and said he is still attending classes and plans to graduate in May. Cheap Air Jordan 5 . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. Air Jordan 5 Retro For Sale . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. . First off, the fans ripped the Cubbies introduction of a fuzzy new kid-friendly mascot named "Clark". Misbah-ul-Haq, Pakistans Test captain, has expressed confidence in international cricket returning to the country soon, and said it was ironic his teams rise to No. 1 in the ICC rankings had to be accomplished without home-crowd support.The ICC chief executive David Richardson presented Misbah with the Test mace at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Wednesday, after Pakistan had risen to No. 1 for the first time since the current Test rankings were introduced in 2003, by virtue of their 2-2 draw in England this summer. Pakistan are the fifth side after Australia, England, India and South Africa to top the ICC Test rankings.There is nothing better than being No. 1 in the Test rankings, Misbah said. Its one of the best days in my life; the happiest day in my cricketing career. And there cant be a better location to receive the ICC Test Championship mace than this ground where we last played a home Test seven years ago. It is ironic for both the players as well as the fans that the journey to the No. 1 position has been outside Pakistan.The players have missed on the crowd support, while the spectators have been unable to watch live some magnificent team and individual performances. But I am confident that things will change and international cricket will soon return to Pakistan.I would like to congratulate everyone who has been part of this achievement and part of this journey; every individual, every coach, every selector who has worked hard for this No. 1 position.The families of the players have really sacrificed a lot too. We have to spend almost six to seven months out of the country without them and thats difficult [for both parties]. Credit should be given to the families. Its a proud moment for all of us and I hope we can go together at the top for a long period.Apart from a visit by Zimbabwe in 2015, no Full Member country has toured Pakistan since March 2009, when gunmen attacked the bus transporting the Sri Lankan team to Gaddafi Stadium on a morning of the Lahore Test. Jordan Retro 5 For Sale Cheap. Since then, Pakistan have had to host their home fixtures at neutral venues, primarily the UAE.Being part of a team that is ranked No.1 in Test cricket is a pinnacle achievement for any cricketer. Pakistan is a deserving recipient of the mace, Richardson said. It is all the more impressive that it has reached the number-one Test ranking despite not being able to play a series in front of its home crowd since March 2009.Today is all about the team, today its all about Misbah. One of the things that makes Pakistan one of the most watchable teams in the world is the fact that theyve got a man for all occasions. Theyve got batsmen who can deal with a tight situation, and on the bowling side, you cant prepare seaming wickets against them because theyve got the seamers to exploit those conditions, left-arm and the right-arm and of course youve got a world class legspinner, so youve got all the ingredients for a top team and we are looking forward to Pakistan if not staying at No. 1 then certainly challenging for good many years to come. A strong Pakistan side is good for international cricket.Pakistan face a challenge to hold on to their No. 1 Test ranking. India, presently No. 2, will displace Pakistan if they beat New Zealand in the upcoming three-Test series at home. Pakistans next Test series is in October against West Indies in the UAE. The team that is No. 1 on April 1, 2017, will receive $ 1 million from the ICC.The next target we have set for ourselves is to finish as the No. 1 Test side at the April 1 cut-off date, Misbah said. It is not going to be easy as we have series against formidable sides like the West Indies, New Zealand and Australia. But instead of getting overawed by our opponents, we need to trust in our abilities, focus on our strengths and try to be as consistent as possible.
