Jackson was dismissed from the team following his first arrest.
USF DE LaDarrius Jackson Kicked Off Squad After Being Charged With 2nd Rape in 30 Days
LaDarrius Jackson needs to be thrown completely under the jail if any of these allegations are proven true.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, the University of South Florida football player was arrested for the second time in a month Wednesday after a second woman accused him of sexual assault.
“Jackson, a 22-year-old junior defensive end, turned himself in at Orient Road Jail and is again facing charges of sexual battery and false imprisonment, the same charges filed in his May 1 arrest by USF police. He also has been dismissed from the football team. He had been suspended from team activities after the first arrest.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, the latest report of an assault occurred during a visit to a woman’s Hillsborough County home March 27.
She told detectives she was putting items in her bathroom when Jackson asked her multiple times to shower with him. She repeatedly denied Jackson’s requests and attempted to leave the bathroom, but he blocked the door, she reported.
To appease the 6-foot-4, 248-pound defensive end, the woman began to wash her hair in her bathtub while remaining clothed, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Then, the woman told detectives, Jackson grabbed her, forcefully removed her clothing against her will, and committed sexual battery, the agency said.
Afterward, Jackson made the woman drive to a nearby pharmacy to purchase an emergency contraceptive and ordered her to take it in his presence. He then made her drive him home to his on-campus dorm in USF’s Holly Apartments, the agency said.”
USF head coach Charlie Strong has released the following statement:
“We are aware of the charges filed against [Jackson],” new South Florida coach Charlie Strong said after the first set of charges. “While we find the allegations troubling, we will continue to gather information and support the judicial process before providing further comment.”
