COLUMBUS, Ohio. Two former Ohio State football players were acquitted Thursday on charges of rape and kidnapping resulting from sexual contact with a woman in an apartment shared by the two players.

Amir Rip And Yasen Screw embraced, and both cried after the announcement of the jury’s verdict. Their lawyers argued in court that the woman had consensual sex with both men, but later regretted it. They also accused the victim’s father of pushing her and the authorities to initiate criminal cases.

Franklin County Assistant Attorney Daniel Meyer said the woman came to the apartment expecting to chat with Rip, but was brutally raped by two men.

The jury deliberated for less than four hours between Wednesday and Thursday mornings before finding Rip and Wint not guilty of two counts of rape and kidnapping. Each man could face more than 30 years in prison and registration as sex offenders if found guilty.

Two players were removed from the team in February 2020 after being arrested.

The woman told police that she was having consensual sex with Rip before Wint entered the room, and both forced her to have sex. After a few minutes they stopped and Rip recorded the woman agreeing that the sex was consensual.

Rip and Lloyd McFarquhar, another former Ohio State football player, both testified Wednesday that the players were ordered to obtain evidence that their sexual partners agreed to defend themselves from prosecution.
