COURT Win: For Ex-Baylor Player Evidence and Facts Matter
The sexual assault conviction against former Baylor football player Sam Ukwuachu has been overturned by Texas’s 10th Court of Appeals. The appeals court overturned Ukwuachu’s conviction because text messages between the victim and a friend of hers on the night of the alleged assault were improperly excluded from evidence. Ukwuachu claims the texts show that he had consensual intercourse with the woman. The court ruled that Ukwuachu be given a new trial.
