STILLWATER, Okla. – A former Oklahoma State basketball player who was convicted of rape in 2012 may be forced to go back to court.

Darrell Williams was convicted of two counts of rape by instrumentation and one count of sexual battery after two women claimed Williams groped them at an off-campus party.

Williams was sentenced to a year of probation.

The Court of Criminal Appeals reversed the conviction on Tuesday, claiming jurors made observations at the crime scene that were not allowed.

From the beginning, Williams has proclaimed his innocence in the case.
