A judicial pretrial, which is closed to the public, is planned for July, and some hearings have also been scheduled for September.

The five players were charged earlier this year in connection with an alleged sexual assault at a London, Ont., hotel in 2018.

They are all charged with sexual assault, though McLeod also faces an additional charge of sexual assault for “being a party to the offence.”

The players have chosen to be tried before a judge and jury.
