On Wednesday, released police reports and witness accounts stated former Ohio State Buckeyes CB Gareon Conley did not have sex with his rape accuser.
Conley’s attorney, Kevin Spellacy, denied the accusations in an interview with WOIO-TV. He said they are “ludicrous and ridiculous.”
Spellacy told the news station, “In my opinion this young lady is an opportunist and it’s actually despicable.”
He said Conley was never alone with the accuser and he said he has three witnesses who can testify his client did nothing wrong.
TMZ Sports got a hold of footage showing the rape accuser being extremely friendly with Conley almost half an hour before she was apparently kicked out of his hotel room. The problem with that is the accuser originally stated that she first met Conley on an elevator and he immediately asked for a foursome.
“The woman accusing Gareon Conley of rape was friendly with the NFL prospect at a bar roughly 25 minutes before they ended up in a hotel room together … and TMZ Sports has the video.
The footage show Conley leaving the Barley House in Cincinnati around 2:20 AM on April 9th … with the accuser and her female friends following closely behind. At one point the accuser reaches out and touches Gareon’s back.
A few minutes later, Conley has his arm around another woman in front of the bar and the accuser catches up from behind and grabs his arm. Gareon looks back and appears to hold her hand.
The video is critical because it appears to contradict what the accuser told police — that she first met Conley in an elevator at the Westin hotel around 2:45 AM.
Both sides agree they ended up in a hotel room at the Westin together. She claims Conley raped her. Conley adamantly denies the allegation.”
