Green Bay (Wis.) -- Mossy Cade, former defensive back for the NFL's Packers, was bound over for trial on a perjury charge. Cade, 26, is accused of lying under oath at his 1987 sexual assault trial. Cade, who is serving a two-year prison term, said at the trial that he did not sexually assault a 42-year-old Houston woman at his De Pere (Wis.) home Nov. 4, 1985. But a psychiatrist testified at Cade's sentencing on the sexual assault charge that the football player told him after the conviction that he had committed the offense.
