Torrey Green to remain in jail

December bail hearing set for former USU football player charged with rape

LOGAN Utah (ABC4 Utah) - A former Utah State football player will remain locked up following his initial court appearance Tuesday.
Torrey Green is facing multiple felonies linked to rape, sexual assault and kidnapping.

Green played for USU and then made the Atlanta Falcons football team.  But the Falcons cut Green after allegations of rape surfaced.
Tuesday, Green walked into court wearing a new kind of uniform, this one belonging to the Cache County jail.  He remained handcuffed while addressing questions from the judge.  Green waived his right to a speedy preliminary hearing. 
He is  being held on a no bail warrant and the judge set December 13th for a bail hearing.
His attorney hopes bail will be set in order for him to be released.

"He seems to be holding up pretty well," said his attorney Sky Lazaro.  "I spent some time with him on Sunday so he's hanging in there."

The Cache County attorney said nine women came forward alleging they had been raped or sexually abused.
"We have five cases that have been filed that involve five separate victims," said James Swink.
He said two other women did not want their cases to become public and allegations from two other women didn't have sufficient evidence.

"We do have the reports of the sexual assault and we do have other evidence that corroborates the sexual assault allegations," Swink said.

Swink said they will oppose Green's bail claiming he remains a danger to the community.
