MADISON - Attorneys for former Badgers wide receiver Quintez Cephus said Monday the University of Wisconsin-Madison is "slow walking" its consideration of his request for readmission after being found not guilty of sexual assault.  

Cephus' attorney Kathleen Stilling said his legal team had given the university more than 250 pages of documents, pictures and other exhibits from his trial. She said the university does not need "every single transcript in the case," which said she would take about three months to get.

"They have everything they need to do what’s right," Stilling told reporters at a news conference. “The answer that was so clear to the jury should also be clear to the UW administration.” 

UW-Madison released a statement saying it is committed to performing a "complete and thorough review" of all petitions for readmission.
