On the day it was scheduled to begin, the trial of suspended Badgers football player Quintez Cephus was suspended Monday after the judge determined it was “not ripe for trial.” 

Dane County Circuit Court Judge William Hanrahan, who was to preside over the trial, chose to allow Cephus to remain out on bail while the trial dates are reset. 

Cephus stands trial on two counts of felony sexual assault, to which he pleaded not guilty. He is suspended from the team indefinitely, pending the trial’s results.
