Ex-Washington NFL Player Derrius Guice Accused Of Rape By Two Women During College Years
Two former students of Louisiana State University have accused recently-released Washington NFL player, Derrius Guice of rape on separate occasions during their days at LSU.
Both women, who have not been identified, claim that Derrius Guice, a freshman star athlete at the time, sexually assaulted them in their respective apartments months apart in 2016.
One woman detailed her experience with Guice stating,
“I was drunk and passed out on my bed. I never gave him consent. I never wanted to have sex with him. I don’t even remember except the flashbacks I had. I just wonder sometimes, does he even know that that was wrong?”
Reportedly, a USA TODAY investigation found that the women’s allegations were shared at the time with multiple people at the school – including at least two coaches, an athletics administrator and a nurse – yet the school does not appear to have investigated.
Guice’s attorney Peter Greenspun said in a statement
“At no time were allegations of physical or sexual assault brought against Derrius during his years as a student athlete at LSU. To bring up such assertions only after the Virginia charges were initiated certainly calls into question the credibility, nature and timing of what is being alleged years later.”
This statement comes after Derrius Guice was arrested (August 7, 2020) on suspicion of 3 domestic violence charges reported on Feb. 14, March 13 and April 17. All reportedly happened at the NFL star’s home in Ashburn, Virginia.
Guice turned himself over to authorities and was released on $100,000 unsecured bond and subsequently released from Washington Football team the same day.
