Ex-IU running back pleads not guilty to molestation

September 30, 2016

Former Indiana University running back Kiante Enis has pleaded not guilty to two counts of felony child molestation for allegedly having an illegal relationship with a girl under age 13.

Enis made his first court appearance Wednesday at the courthouse in Winchester. The 19-year-old from Randolph County was dismissed from the IU football team after the charges were filed last week. He was released from the Randolph County jail after posting $20,000 bond. Randolph County Judge Jay Toney set Enis' trial for Feb. 13.

Police say Enis admitted to at least two sexual encounters.

Enis rushed for 7,014 and 98 touchdowns at Winchester Community High School and originally committed to playing at Michigan before changing his mind.

Each count is punishable by up to 16 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
