UCLA defensive back E.J. Woods has been charged with assaulting two female students, the Los Angeles City Attorney's office told the Los Angeles Times on Friday.

The 19-year-old freshman was charged with two counts of sexual battery and four counts of battery, the Times reported. He could face up to one year in jail for each sexual battery charge and six months for each battery charge.

The charges stem from three separate incidents at off-campus apartments between October and January, according to the city attorney's office.

Woods attended Encino Crespi High. He was not arrested. Instead, he received a voluntary appearance letter and is scheduled to be arraigned on April 6.
