Haynesworth is accused of inappropriately touching a waitress at the W Hotel in downtown D.C. February 13.

Court documents say Haynesworth slid his debit card down the shirt of a server, who was identified as a college student.

The victim told authorities that she asked Haynesworth to stop, but he did not.

Haynesworth's attorney says his client is innocent and will not accept a plea deal that's been offered. The deal expires May 17.

If convicted, he faces a possible 180-day jail sentence and a fine of up to $1,000.
