Second Baylor football player who had has life ruined by rape allegations wins in court

Sam Ukwuachu the former Boise State player who transferred to Baylor will get another chance and hopefully a fair one in court.

You cannot overturn the agony of having rape allegations against you. At Baylor University in Texas, these allegations were pretty common over the past few years.  Well, within a couple months a second player charged for sexual assault had his case overturned.

You may remember Shawn Oakman, the massive man from Baylor who everyone raved about when entering the draft. He had his hopes of becoming an NFL star cut short when a female alleged he raped her, but the case was overturned. Now, Sam Ukwuachu another All-America who transferred to play at Baylor had his case overturned.

The 10th circuit court of appeals in Texas ruled to overturn the 2015 sexual assault conviction and open a new trial for the second time in 27 months.

The ruling, according to documents, was centered around the argument that phone records belonging to Ukwuachu’s roommate used by the state in arguments to convict him were examples of “false testimony” and created a “false impression” on the jury, violating Ukwuachu’s rights.
