Former Kent State football player Nate Holley will have to wait a little bit longer to get his day in court, as the start of his trial was moved to Feb. 7.

Holley’s trial was originally set to start on Tuesday, according to documents released by the Portage County Sheriff’s Office.

Holley was arrested Nov. 4 for allegedly kidnapping an unnamed Kent State student and holding her against her will at Campus Pointe apartment complex.

Holley was then charged with second degree assault on Dec. 31, a felonious charge that stemmed from the original incident. Holley appeared in court for that charge Jan. 10.

Lawyers for both Holley and the defendant believe the trial will last two days.

Holley is currently out on $50,000 bond and is in Minnesota to train for the NFL combine.
