STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Former Oklahoma State basketball player Darrell Williams is free from jail but his court battle will continue as he tries to clear his name in a sexual assault case.

A judge on Friday gave Williams two suspended sentences of one year each on two rape by instrumentation convictions.

Two women accused the 23-year-old of groping them and reaching inside their pants without their consent at a party in December 2010.

Williams had been in the Payne County Jail since his conviction in July. He left the jail Friday in a car that pulled out of the garage and drove off without Williams speaking to anyone.

Williams' attorney says she hopes a new trial will be granted so he can be found not guilty and clear his name.
