A district judge denied a motion for a new trial for a former Baylor football player, who was sentenced to prison for sexual assault earlier this year.

Tevin Sherard Elliott, a former defensive end, was sentenced to 20 years in prison as well as a $10,000 fine for each of two counts of sexual assault. The sentences are set to run concurrently.

Elliottt was arrested in April 2012 for reportedly sexually assaulting a woman at a party at a South Waco apartment complex on April 15.

Elliott was indicted on the two sexual assault charges in August 2012. Following his arrest, Elliott was indefinitely suspended from the football team.

Elliott filed the motion for a new trial, citing that prosecutors omitted important video evidence that could have been useful to his defense during the trial. District Judge Matt Johnson denied Elliott's motion Monday afternoon.
