Free agent DB C.J. Spillman has been charged with sexual assault in Tarrant County, Tex.

Spillman was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at the Cowboys' team hotel on September 20 last year, and the judge finally handed down the paperwork on Monday. The Cowboys continued to let Spillman, a special teams ace, play, as he appeared in all 16 games. This isn't 29-year-old Spillman's first sexually-charged wrongdoing, as he was accused of rape back in 2013.

C.J. Spillman is listed as the 49ers' starting free safety on the team's initial unofficial depth chart.

The Sacramento Bee pegs C.J. Spillman and Darcel McBath as candidates to replace free agent FS Dashon Goldson.

Goldson already has one foot out the door. Spillman is a thumper that has been used in goal-line situations, while McBath is a restricted free agent that is better in coverage. The Niners could also address the position in the draft with one of their 15 picks.

49ers SS C.J. Spillman has been working with the first-team defense during Organized Team Activities.

Spillman is primarily a special teamer, but could be used as a complement to Donte Whitner on passing downs. "We’ve had time to have a full spring with him," DB coach Ed Donatell said. "He’s more mature as a professional, he’s done a great job with our special teams and he's looking to increase his role."
