(AP) Two of the three men accused of attacking Wisconsin running back Montee Ball are scheduled for plea and sentencing hearings. Twenty-one-year-old Wendell J. Venerable and 22-year-old Robert A. Wilks are both due in court Wednesday afternoon. Each faces a single count of battery. The felony charge carries a maximum penalty of 18 months in prison and a $10,000 fine.
All three are accused of attacking Ball in August as he walked behind two friends. They allegedly knocked him to the ground and kicked him in the head and chest. Ball was left unconscious and with a concussion. Ball has said he doesn't remember the attack and doesn't know why they jumped him. Messages left with their defense attorneys weren't immediately returned.
The third suspect is due in court next month.
