For the past couple years, the Baylor Bears football program has been under hot water for several sexual assault cases. Now, a former Baylor student is claiming she was gang-raped by two former Baylor players.
In addition to that, she claims 31 players committed 52 acts of rape in a four-year span.
According to TMZ, here’s the details:
The woman behind the suit identifies herself using the pseudonym Elizabeth Doe — and claims she was raped by lineman Tre’Von Armstead and linebacker Shamycheal Chatman at a party in 2013.
The woman claims the rape occurred after a party hosted by Baylor football star Shawn Oakman — who’s currently facing rape allegations of his own in an unrelated case.
The woman claims the men took her to her apartment while she was “very intoxicated” and doesn’t remember how she got there. She essentially says she was too drunk to give consent.
The players were named as suspects, but were never charged.
With ongoing investigations, the NCAA will definitely have to set an example of Baylor if found guilty. It’s just a matter of how stiff the penalty would be.
There would surely be a loss of scholarships and it’s a possibility they would be banned from postseason play.
