New Mexico DB arrested in rape case
April 30, 2014
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A defense attorney says evidence will vindicate New Mexico cornerback SaQwan Edwards in a rape case.
Police say the 21-year-old redshirt junior from Houston remained jailed after surrendering Tuesday on a warrant accusing him of criminal sexual penetration and kidnapping.
Defense attorney Paul Kennedy says the defense has surprising forensic evidence concerning the allegations but he would not provide further details.
Edwards was arrested after a female student said she was raped by three men on April 13.
Edwards' teammate Crusoe Gonbay and a former university student also have been arrested in the case. The two players have been suspended from the team.
Gongbay's lawyer has said his client is presumed innocent.
