Former USU linebacker charged with sexual assault

A former Utah State University linebacker who stands accused of sexually assaulting seven women has been ordered to stand trial on the final charge left undecided, after a preliminary hearing took place earlier this year. Torrey Green, 23, will now have to face charges of aggravated kidnapping, a first-degree felony. The judge's decision came after following a three-day preliminary hearing in March, with closing arguments in April and addition written arguments being filed over the past several weeks. Green had already been ordered to stand trial on six counts of rape, a first-degree felony; two counts of object rape, a first-degree felony; and two counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony.

The charges are currently split between seven separate criminal cases, though the preliminary hearings for the charges were done jointly. During those hearings, seven women testified they had met Green while he was playing football for USU and while he was initially warm and charming with them, they all claimed he wouldn't listen when they told him no while he began either touching, kissing, or undressing them.

Green had graduated from USU in early 2016 and was signed as a rookie linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons. However, he was dropped from the team after the allegations began to come to light. He is currently being held without bail in the Cache County Jail.
