PURDUE'S KYLE WILLIAMS REQUESTS TRIAL MOVE. FULMER CUP POINTS GALORE

New, 5 comments

Purdue's Kyle Williams has requested a move for his trial from Tippecanoe County, Indiana to another venue, delaying hearings where Williams would formally face charges related to two attempted rapes and attacks in West Lafayette last November. The negative publicity (no doubt from notoriously anti-athlete newspapers like The Exponent,) would prevent a fair trial, say Williams lawyers, who are examining Williams' medical records in an apparent effort to construct a defense based on brain damage.

We wouldn't make light of rape--even though we did giggle at jokes about it in the movie Yellowbeard--but we are running the Fulmer Cup here, and should ask the question: does this count, since it happened in November? (HT: Comanda)
