These two young men just threw their life away…
2 University Of Miami Players Suspended And Arrested After Admittance Of Teen Rape
Two University of Miami football players have been kicked off the team after they admitted to raping a 17-year-old in a dorm room, Florida police said.
Alex Figueroa, 19, and JaWand Blue, 20, were arrested Tuesday on sexual battery charges for the Saturday attack, CBS Miami reported.
The two men were both linebackers for UM.
Figueroa and Blue told police that they bought alcohol for the victim on Saturday night and then took her to Figueroa’s dorm room on the Miami campus.
That’s where they performed sexual acts on her without her consent, they told police.
According to the arrest report, the victim had been drugged before the attack and was incapable of resisting.
UM’s Director of Athletics Blake James said in a statement that both men had been removed from the school’s football team.
They have been suspended from the university, too.
“Any allegation of a sexual assault is extremely serious, and the University will not tolerate conduct that threatens the sanctity and safety of our students and our campus,” he wrote. “We hold all of our students — especially student athletes — to the highest standards of moral conduct.”
If you play football for University of Miami then you should have access to all the willing and consensual sex you want. This is not only disgusting and disturbing it’s completely unneccessary. Good riddance to both of them.
