*A lawyer for Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth has entered a not guilty plea on his behalf to a charge of sexual abuse.

Haynesworth’s lawyer entered the plea for his client during an arraignment hearing this morning in Superior Court in DC.

The NFL player, who was not present at the hearing, is accused of sliding his credit card into the bra of a waitress and touching her breast during a birthday party at a hotel in February.
