An out of control spring break celebration has resulted in the lives of four Atlanta students being dramatically changed forever. Three Morehouse College athletes are facing a host of charges including sexual assault after an 18-year-old Spelman student accused them of raping her, 11 Alive reports. Chukwudi Ndudikwa and Malcolm Frank are facing rape and aggravated sodomy charges, while teammate Tevin Mgbo could be facing sodomy, kidnapping and reckless conduct charges.

According to WBSTV, one witness said they saw the victim consume alcohol and Molly on the night of the alleged assault. Others say that she was very “flirtatious and sexually aggressive” at the party. One of the victim’s friends described the 18-year-old as “not recognizing her friends” on the night of the party and went on to say “she picked up a knife and tried to stab me.” Several other witnesses say that the victim had sex with multiple men in different rooms that night.

While the victim, witnesses and even the accused agree that sexual intercourse did occur that night, whether or not the sex was consensual is what’s being questioned. The capability of the victim to consent to sex considering her alcohol-induced state is also being investigated.

Court documents reveal that the victim admits to drinking alcohol, but says that she did not take any drugs.

“If you voluntarily drink to the point that you’re still conscious, that’s one thing. But if you drank so much to the point that you pass out and then someone takes advantage of you, that’s a different thing. In this particular case, it appears that she was conscious and not unconscious. That would be tough for the prosecution. What this boils down to is whether the defendants in this particular case thought that she had given a valid consent,” said Fulton County prosecutor Al Dixon.

 

The District Attorney’s office is expected to continue investigating over the next few months before they decide whether or not they will indict the accused athletes over the allegations.
