East Lansing — Michigan receiver Grant Perry’s pre-trial hearing that was scheduled for Thursday morning at 54B District court has been adjourned until next month.

Perry, 19, faces two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, one felony count of resisting a police officer and one misdemeanor count of a minor in possession of alcohol.

This is the second time the hearing has been moved. It is now scheduled for Feb. 23. Perry currently is suspended from the football team and did not travel last month to the Orange Bowl.

Perry allegedly groped a 21-year-old woman in the groin and buttocks in an incident Oct. 15, 2016, outside of Lou & Harry’s Bar in East Lansing, according to a 46-page police report made public Dec. 28. When officers responded to the incident, Perry, according to the report, failed to give his identification to officers and the officers said he ran but was tackled and then taken to jail.

The incident happened the weekend Michigan did not have a game. He was held out of the next two games for what Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh called disciplinary reasons, but Perry did return to play later in the season.
