Next Steps Into Investigation Of UT Football Players Accused Of Sexual Assault
Updated: Friday, July 25 2014, 07:57 AM CDT
Two UT football players are suspended from the team after being arrested on sexual assault charges. Kendall Sanders and Montrell Meander are charged with sexual assault for an alleged incident in an on-campus dorm in June.
On Friday morning, Sanders and Meander are out on bond. They face possibility of punishment from the university, on top of the possibility of between two to 20 years in prison if found guilty of the sexual assault charges.
UT Police are applauding the alleged victim for coming forward and believe they have a solid case. They say in June a woman who knew Meander agreed to go back to his dorm room with him after a night out and have sex. At some point, police say Sanders came in and forced himself on the victim, with Meander joining in shortly after. The woman reportedly told both men to stop. Chief David Carter of the UT Police Department says even though this is a high-profile case, neither player is getting special treatment.
"Is there a lot of scrutiny and attention based on who people are? Of course there is," said Chief Carter during a press conference Thursday shortly after the arrests. "The point is it does not matter. Our detectives did a great job of ignoring that and moving forward and looking at the information and finding the evidence."
Sanders is also charged with Improper Photography or Visual Recording for allegedly taking a picture of the victim. This is his second arrest, after Brazos County Sheriff's Deputies picked him up on a DWI charge in April 2013.
