WACO, Texas (AP) — Prosecutors in Texas have rested their case in the trial of a former Baylor University football player accused of raping another student in 2016.
The prosecution rested Thursday, one day after opening statements in the Waco trial of 26-year-old Shawn Oakman, who’s the Bears’ career leader in quarterback sacks.
The woman who says she was raped testified earlier that she’d been drinking and was intoxicated when Oakman assaulted her. She said she told Oakman that she wanted to leave his duplex that night but he wouldn’t allow it.
Oakman’s attorney told jurors that the two had consensual sex. Defense questioning of witnesses was expected to continue through Thursday.
