Two former Louisiana State University students, including a tennis player, claim ex-Washington Football Team running back Derrius Guice raped them four years ago while he was a freshman!
The accusations were made months apart by the women in 2016 were shared with at least two coaches and an athletic administrator at the university, but school administrators apparently did not investigate the claims!
“At no time were allegations of physical or sexual assault brought against Derrius during his years as a student athlete at LSU,” attorney Peter Greenspun told reporters.
“To bring up such assertions only after the Virginia charges were initiated certainly calls into question the credibility, nature and timing of what is being alleged years later.”
“But he wants to be absolutely clear,” Greenspun’s statement continued. “The allegations in this story are just that and have no basis in fact.”
The women are claiming that they were drunk with Guice when this happened:
“I was drunk and passed out on my bed,” the woman said. “I never gave him consent. I never wanted to have sex with him. I don’t even remember except the flashbacks I had. I just wonder sometimes, does he even know that that was wrong?”
The tennis player?
She alleges the two of them met at the bar. Guice went back to the tennis players house and raped her.
Guice was waived by Washington on August 7, 2020 after he was arrested and charged with counts of strangulation, assault, battery, and destruction of property that stemmed from three separate domestic violence incidents that had taken place at his home earlier that year.
