NEW ORLEANS - A new trial date of July 11 has been set for the two Louisiana co-defendants of former NFL star Darren Sharper in a federal drug and sexual assault case.

Sharper pleaded guilty in the federal case in New Orleans, as well as to related charges in state courts in Louisiana, Arizona, California and Nevada.

But two co-defendants in the Louisiana cases - Brandon Licciardi and Eric Nunez - have pleaded not guilty to state and federal charges. A May trial date in the federal case was pushed back this week by a federal judge after prosecutors obtained an updated indictment.

Sharper, who is expected to cooperate in the pending cases, has a June 16 federal sentencing date. It was unclear if that date will be pushed back as well.
