An ESPN Outside the Lines episode scheduled to air Sunday focuses on Derrick Washington, a former Missouri football player that was accused of sexual assault.

Previous coverage provides a timeline of Washington's case.

Aug. 26, 2010: Derrick Washington is suspended from the Missouri football team. Court documents showed that a woman accused Washington of sexual assault a few months earlier in June, and an order of protection was filed by the court a few days later.

Aug. 30: Washington is charged with deviate sexual assault and turned himself in to police.

Sept. 1: Washington is permanently suspended from the football team but allowed to keep his athletic scholarship.

Sept. 12: Columbia police arrest Washington on suspicion of assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

Sept. 22: Washington's attorney, Christopher Slusher, enters a plea of not guilty to the charge of deviate sexual assault.

Sept. 23: Washington is taken into custody after the state increases his bond to $10,000.

Sept. 21, 2011: Washington is found guilty of deviate sexual assault. The charge, which is a Class C felony, carries a penalty of up to seven years in prison.

Nov. 14: Boone County Circuit Judge Kevin Crane sentences Washington to five years in prison. Washington had previously waived his right to jury sentencing. He would end up serving 120 days as part of a "shock" sentence requested by his attorney.

Feb. 12, 2012: Washington enters a guilty plea to the charge of third-degree assault for attacking his ex-girlfriend. He is sentenced to 90 days in jail, to be served concurrently with a 120-day sentence for deviate sexual assault. The domestic assault trial was continued multiple times because attorneys wanted to wait for the verdict of the deviate sexual assault trial.

March 16, 2012: Washington is released from prison on five years probation.

September 2012: Washington transfers to Tuskegee University.
