FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

A judge overseeing Mateen Cleaves' criminal sexual conduct case says a video featuring the former Michigan State basketball star and his accuser may be allowed into evidence.

The 38-year-old Cleaves is charged with assaulting the woman at a motel last summer. He denies the charge.

The Detroit Free Press reports Genesee District Judge Catherine Dowd discussed the video on Friday.

The judge also requested affidavits from Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy and Cleaves' accuser that detail any relationship between a county task force on which the alleged victim may have served.

Defense attorney Frank Manley wants Worthy's office removed from the case. Assistant Prosecutor Lisa Lindsey says her office should remain on the case.

Genesee County's prosecutor did not take the case due to a possible conflict of interest.
