Former Wisconsin football player acquitted of sex crimes

Wisconsin police sometimes make arrests that lead to criminal charges when, in reality, the defendant or defendants in question are innocent. Not every person charged with sex crimes, for instance, is guilty of the acts asserted against him or her. In many instances, the court finds a defendant not guilty, which is exactly what happened regarding former college football player Quintez Cephus.

He used to be a wide receiver for the University of Wisconsin Badgers' football team. That was before he was charged with sexual assault. When two women accused the 21-year-old of criminal conduct at his on-campus apartment, he was not only suspended from the football team, but he was ultimately expelled from the university. Nevertheless, like others in similar circumstances, Cephus was fully guaranteed the presumption of innocence in criminal court.

During the trial, Cephus adamantly maintained that while he did engage in sexual activity with both women, it was consensual. As a verdict was announced on a recent Friday in court, Cephus, his attorneys and his family rejoiced. After only 45 minutes of deliberation, the jury voted not guilty.

Merely being accused of sex crimes can have devastating, lasting negative effects on a person's reputation and life. This is why most Wisconsin defendants request legal representation at the first hint of a problem. In fact, most people who are acquitted attribute their courtroom victories to the strong support provided by the criminal defense attorneys who represented them. Anyone currently facing legal problems regarding criminal charges in this state may request a consultation with an experienced defense attorney at any time.
