Bond increased in former Mizzou RB Derrick Washington assault case

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Former Missouri running back Derrick Washington has been ordered to appear in court at all future hearings in his felony sexual assault and domestic violence cases.

Boone County judge Deborah Daniels increased Washington's bond from $1,000 to $10,000 for the two misdemeanor charges at a Thursday morning hearing. But she rejected a prosecutor's request to set a higher bond in the felony case.

The one-time Tiger captain is accused of entering a former Missouri tutor's closed bedroom while visiting her roommate and assaulting the woman in her sleep. Two weeks after those charges were filed in late August, Washington was charged with two counts of domestic assault after an ex-girlfriend said he hit her in the face five to 10 times and choked her during a late-night argument.

He was kicked off the team before the season started. The next hearing is set for early November.
