Ravens security chief pleads not guilty to groping charges

BALTIMORE (AP) — The security director for the Baltimore Ravens has pleaded not guilty to charges that he groped a stadium worker after a game.

Darren Sanders appeared in court in Baltimore on Thursday to enter the plea. Sanders is charged with second-degree assault and a fourth-degree sex offense. The case stems from allegations that he grabbed the woman’s breasts and buttocks and kissed her without her permission while she escorted him to his car at the stadium in December.

Sanders denies the allegations.

An attorney for Sanders requested a jury trial, which has been scheduled for May 12.

Sanders had a role in the Ravens’ handling of a domestic violence case involving player Ray Rice after video surfaced showing Rice hitting his then-fiancee.
