STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma's criminal appeals court has overturned the conviction of a former Oklahoma State basketball player accused of sexually assaulting two women at an off-campus party in 2010.
The Court of Criminal Appeals on Tuesday reversed the conviction for Darrell (duh-REL') Williams because several jurors made unauthorized visits to the crime scene.
Williams was convicted in 2012 of two counts of rape by instrumentation and one count of sexual battery.
Two women testified that Williams groped them against their will at the party. But Williams' attorneys argued that he was misidentified, noting that the women identified Williams as their attacker after police showed them a lineup of the Oklahoma State basketball team.
At sentencing, Williams received no jail time but was ordered to register as a sex offender.
