Allegations of sexual assault against two Texas football players are “completely false” says one players attorney. The two football players were suspended for violating team rules and sent home early causing them to miss the Alamo Bowl.
The two players were Case McCoy, quarterback and Jordan Hicks, linebacker and the team rule that they violated was the curfew. Perry Minton, who is representing Jordan Hicks insists that the allegation is “completely false.”
In a written statement issued by Minton, Jordan Hicks “vehemently asserts the conduct under investigation by San Antonio police was consensual by everyone involved.” Minton also stated that Hick provided a statement to the police.
The police requested that Hicks undergo a physical examination following the sexual assault allegation and Hicks complied with the request. Minton went on to talk about the actions taken by Hicks after the investigation.
“These are not the actions of a young man with a guilty conscience. These are the actions of an honest citizen eager to cooperate with law enforcement on every level in order to clear his name and that of his friend.”
Minton went on to say that Jordan Hicks and his family are “devastated” by the incident. The San Antonio police spokesman refused to comment as the matter is under investigation.
Sgt. Javier Salazar did address the matter of forensic evidence. “These types of cases rely heavily on forensic evidence. That’s where we’re at not, waiting on the forensic evidence.”
The police report indicated that a 21 year-old woman accused two unidentified man ages 20 and 21, of assaulting her at a downtown hotel. The young woman stated in the heavily redacted report that she invited the two men to her hotel room and believes she was assaulted at approximately 2:00 a.m.
The woman admitted to police officers that she drank several drinks and was intoxicated. In the police report, the woman claims that only one of the men actually assaulted her while the other one “just stood there and watched.”
The police report indicated that the officers who spoke with the woman did see bruises on her right knee and left bicep. After giving her statement, the woman was transported to a San Antonio hospital.
At the hospital, the woman was examined by a sexual assault nurse. The sexual assault nurse also examined both McCoy and Hicks at the hospital.
Both Jordan Hicks and Case McCoy insist they are innocent of the allegations and that everything that went on in the hotel room was consensual.
