The three UK football players charged with marijuana possession last month entered not-guilty pleas Tuesday, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

According to the report, Lexington attorney Jim Lowry was present before Fayette District Judge Megan Lake Thornton to represent junior running back Raymond Sanders, sophomore cornerback Marcus Caffey and sophomore wide receiver Theltus “Bookie” Cobbins.

The players were cited on Thursday, Sept. 13 at about 10 p.m. at Building A of Cooperstown Apartments, 700 Woodland Ave., according court documents the Kernel received following the incident.

Each of the citations said an officer smelled marijuana coming from “the basement area of Building A.”

All three players informed police officers they had been smoking marijuana.

The players’ next court date is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 16, according to the LHL.
