According to a report from the Austin American-Statesman, two Texas Longhorn football players have been charged with sexual assault, stemming from an incident that happened on July 21.
The report states that wide receiver Kendall Sanders and redshirt freshman Montreal Meander are the two players facing the charges.
Per the report, here’s a brief account of the incident that allegedly took place:
According to sources, Sanders and Meander met the alleged victim on Sixth Street the night of July 20. The three went back to Meander’s room inside the San Jacinto dorm on the UT campus, and all three started having what was described as consensual sex, sources said.
During the encounter, Sanders allegedly tried to turn on his cellphone but to record the event, but he accidentally turned on the phone’s flashlight, startling the alleged victim.
After the supposed sexual encounter was complete, sources say, one of the players walked the alleged victim out and asked her if “everything was cool?” The players believed she was OK, sources said. Investigators interviewed another female dorm member who knocked on the door at one point and asked if the alleged victim was OK. She said she was, sources said.
Sanders started seven games for Texas last season and caught 37 balls for 361 yards and a touchdown. Meander did not play for the Longhorns last season with his redshirt.
