Riders GM Eric Tillman

REGINA — A sexual assault case against the general manager of the Saskatchewan Roughriders has been pushed back for two weeks.

Eric Tillman was not in court Tuesday, but a lawyer appearing on his behalf asked that the case be adjourned to April 21 to allow for “additional discussions.”

There was no comment from the lawyer outside the provincial courthouse in Regina.

Tillman has yet to enter a plea on an allegation that he sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl last summer.

When the charge was first laid in early February, the married father of two suggested there was more to the story and said he would rely on the justice system to air the facts.

Tillman, who helped lead the Riders to the Canadian Football League’s Grey Cup championship in 2007, remains on paid administrative leave.
