Woman who accused OU's Anderson of sexual assault speaks out

Woman who accused OU's Anderson of sexual assault speaks out

Earlier this month, the 23-year-old woman filed for an emergency order of protection against Anderson; additional details subsequently emerged, with the woman describing the player in a written statement to the court as the "alleged rapist" and herself as the "victim of rape." An attorney for Anderson has called the accusations "patently false", saying the woman made them after Anderson declined her social invitations. According to the report, she said she began remembering the events of the night of November 16 while talking to a friend the weekend of December 2, then filed for the protective order on December 4.

Cleveland County district attorney Greg Mashburn said of the unsupported rape charge, "I think, in this case it was important to tell the whole story through the facts that were presented to us". He leads the Sooners with 960 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns and has 283 yards and five touchdowns receiving.

According to Eric Bailey of the Tulsa World, "text messages on both the accuser and Rodney Anderson's phones played a big role" in the prosecutors' decision not to charge Anderson. In her statement, Thornton says she is disappointed in the justice system after the Cleveland County district attorney decided not to press charges against Anderson.

The woman told authorities that she began remember images of from that night weeks later, which is why she filed for the protective order.

The Anderson case is just one of a few high-profile cases, but their impacts have been wide reaching often leaving victims to hide in the shadows allowing their attacks to remain free. My body was violated when I was unable to give consent. I was speechless when I heard inaccurate statements, a disregard for addressing my inability to give consent, and projected a perceived bias. I had no desire for anything but criminal justice. I truly hope their unorthodox, erroneous and egregious release of detailed information does not affect and/or deter future victims from coming forward. In the humble words of Eleanor Roosevelt, 'What you don't do can be a destructive force'.

It looks like Oklahoma will have its leading rushing available for the Rose Bowl against Georgia.
