CHAMPAIGN -- Illinois junior Kendrick Nunn appeared in Champaign County Circuit Court Friday.

Nunn enter not guilty pleas to two domestic battery charges. He's accused of striking a woman in her Champaign apartment Wednesday night.

Nunn turned himself in to police Thursday, and was booked on the charges.

Attorney Anthony Bruno said Thursday he had not viewed the police report, but following the hearing, asked people to allow the legal process to play out.

"Today, Kendrick Nunn is 100% innocent in the eyes of the law, and that will never change until a jury of 12 of his peers comes back and reviews all of the evidence presented in a trial and says he's guilty," said Bruno. "Until then, he should enjoy the presumption of innocence that we all enjoy as Americans."

Nunn is the second Illinois player to be arrested on a domestic battery charge in the last week.  Champaign Police arrested fellow junior guard Jaylon Tate Saturday morning, after Tate was accused of hitting a woman. According to Tate's attorney, the woman has since recanted that story. Prosecutors, and the Champaign Police Department, are reviewing the information.
