Rape charges dooming NCAA athletes

Posted: February 8, 2011 by bretthouseal1 in Uncategorized

Over the past few months, many NCAA Division I athletes have been in the news for the possibility of charges of rape to their name. As harsh as it might seem, it is necessary to look at this problem from two different view points. It is not right to automatically assume that these allegations are true. These allegations could be completely fraudulent and imagined by an infuriated fan, girlfriend, or others. However, the allegations might be true and the student-athlete should get what he deserves. Whatever the case, there has been a staggering amount of people that have been accused in such a short time.

These are just a few of the athletes that have been accused:

Garrett Wittels, a baseball player at Florida International University, is facing charges of rape while he was in the Bahamas.

University of Washington basketball player (unnamed) was accused, but not charged with rape.

Darrell Williams, an Oklahoma State basketball player, is facing charges of sexual battery and rape.
