Former Baylor defensive end indicted for sexual assault
WACO, Texas – Former Baylor defensive end Shawn Oakman has been indicted by a Texas grand jury on a charge of sexually assaulting a woman at his apartment earlier this year.
A McLennan County grand jury returned the indictment Wednesday against the 24-year-old Oakman, who finished his college eligibility in December as the Bears’ career leader in quarterback sacks.
His attorney, Michelle Tuegel, said Wednesday that Oakman maintains his innocence in the case.
A woman told police that Oakman attacked her April 3 after they met at a Waco nightclub. According to a police affidavit, Oakman told investigating officers they had consensual sex.
The affidavit says the woman was “treated for her injuries” at a medical center, where a sexual assault examination was performed. Investigators searched Oakman’s apartment several hours later.
