Former MSU football player Donnie Corley Jr. attended his arraignment in East Lansing on Wednesday morning. 

Corley, Jr. was arraigned in East Lansing’s 54B District Court. Corley faces a third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge and could get up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

He is one of three MSU football players accused of sexually assaulting a woman at an on-campus party in January. Demetric Vance and Josh King are the other two suspects. Vance was arraigned on Tuesday.

MSU head coach Mark Dantonio dismissed all three football players from the team.

Judge Richard Ball set a $10,000 bond for Corley, Jr., which he posted within 30 minutes.
