BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Ravens head of security entered a plea of not guilty in court Thursday during his arraignment, Mike Schuh reports.
Security Director Darren Sanders was charged with a fourth-degree sex offense by a female Ravens employee.
The 48-year-old former Baltimore City police is also facing a second-degree offense charge in the same case.
WJZ learned in December the allegations stem from an incident that occurred at M&T Bank Stadium during the Jacksonville game.
That’s when an employee filed a complaint with Baltimore City police alleging while she escorted Sanders in part of the building, he “groped her buttocks more than once,” he “pressed his body against her’s” even “kissed her neck” and then “attempted to force her to grab” his privates.
The Ravens have placed Sanders on paid leave.
Sanders had a role in the Ravens’ handling of a domestic violence case involving player Ray Rice after video surfaced showing Rice hitting his then-fiancee in an elevator.
