NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A California men accused of tampering with evidence following the alleged rape of a Vanderbilt University student has pleaded not guilty.

Miles Finley did not appear in court for Wednesday's arrangement. His attorney entered the plea on his behalf.

Finley, a friend of ex-Vanderbilt football player Brandon Vandenburg, turned himself into police last month.

Vandenburg and three other former football players, Corey Batey, Brandon Banks and Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie, are charged with raping an unconscious female student in Vandenburg's on-campus dorm room in June.

Vandenburg and Batey will go on trial next August.  Banks and McKenzie will likely testify against the two.

Former wide receiver Chris Boyd entered a conditional guilty plea for his role in attempting to cover up the crime. As a part of his plea deal, Boyd must also testify against his former teammates.

Joseph Quinzio, also a friend of Vandenburg's, is additionally charged with tampering with electronic evidence following the rape.  He remains in California pending extradition to Middle Tennessee.
