Former Wisconsin​ WR found not guilty of sexual assault against two women

Former Wisconsin wide out Quintez Cephus was found not guilty on charges of sexual assault

The movie of Brian Banks coming out any day now, the story of a football player getting blackballed by a female is fresh in the news.

According to Fox Sports, a jury deliberated for just 30 minutes on Friday before it acquitted former University of Wisconsin wide receiver Quintez Cephus on charges alleging that he sexually assaulted two female students.

Cephus, 21, was suspended from the football team last August and was expelled from the university earlier this year for violating its non-academic misconduct code.

Cephus testified that when they arrived at the apartment, one of the women went to his bedroom, beckoned him in, and then started removing her clothing, and that the other woman followed Cephus into the bedroom. Cephus said he had sex with both women, and that both had asked for him to do specific things during sex. 

The women both testified this week they were very intoxicated at the time and do not remember much about the night. One described her memories of the night as “snapshots,” while the other told jurors she had longer periods of memory, which started when she woke to find herself naked in bed with Cephus and her friend.

Cephus will hopefully latch on with a division 1 team, and hopes teams see the truth.
