Vanderbilt Identifies Players Dismissed From Team (http://www.newschannel5.com/story/22845690/vanderbilt-identifies-players-dismissed-from-team)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Vanderbilt University has released the names of the four football players dismissed from the team for violation of team rules in June.

University officials said Brandon Banks, Corey Batey, Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie and Brandon Vandenburg will not be a part of the 2013 roster.

Head coach James Franklin issued a statement regarding the incident:

"For student athletes at Vanderbilt, it is a privilege, not a right, to be a part of the program. My coaching staff and I make sure every member of our team understands that. We insist on high standards of personal responsibility and integrity, and there are consequences when those standards are not met."

The students were also suspended from the university pending further investigation.

Officials said the university reported the matter to the Metro Nashville Police Department and was fully cooperating with the Metro Police investigation.

This incident surrounds an investigation into sex crimes on the Vanderbilt University campus. Police said they were investigating an incident that happened in a dorm room.

The university said it will make further comments when appropriate. Go Vandy you nigger loving POS institute of human learning for monkey people! I remember back in the day when you never won a football game because your admission standards were so high, niggers couldn't attend. But you fixed that, didn't you. You lower admission standards so niggers could play on yo feetsball team and your still not winning that many games, but you got the niggers that you wanted, didn't you. I will make further comments when appropriate.

Second ex-Vanderbilt football player arrested by Kimberly Curth & Julia Bruck (http://www.wsmv.com/story/23095617/four-ex-vanderbilt-football-players-indicted)

Two former Vanderbilt University football players have now been arrested following an investigation into an alleged on-campus sex crime.

Corey Batey and Brandon Vandenburg are both in the Metro Jail, and their bonds have been set at $350,000.

Two other former players were indicted on Friday, with Batey and Vandenburg, but they have not been arrested.

Vandenburg, Batey, Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie and Brandon Banks have been at the center of the investigation that began in June after a reported sexual assault in a Vanderbilt University campus dorm.

Vanderbilt officials then banned the four from campus and kicked them off the football team for what was called a violation of team rules.

Each of the four is now charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. Police said Vandenburg is additionally charged with one count of tampering with evidence and one count of unlawful photography.

Police say the investigation revealed the four allegedly raped an unconscious victim inside Vandenburg's room at Gillette House dormitory in the early morning hours of Sunday, June 23.

According to the indictment, Vandenburg photographed the victim and distributed that picture.

Metro police detectives began investigating after they were notified by Vanderbilt University police, who said an unrelated situation captured by the dorm's hallway surveillance system revealed concerning behavior by the suspects.

"It was viewing of the surveillance video in regards to a totally unrelated situation that kind of started the investigation process," said Metro police spokesman Don Aaron.

Since that time, Metro police interviewed a number of people and collected evidence to send to the TBI Crime Laboratory.

And late last month, Metro detectives traveled to southern California to follow up on new leads in the case and collect other evidence.

Batey was taken into custody Friday and transported to General Hospital for a mandatory blood test, required by state law.

"Police knocked on the door. He answered the door. He told them he would cooperate fully, and that's what he did," said attorney Worrick Robinson, who is representing Batey.

Vandenburg was arrested early Saturday morning.

Metro police added this investigation is ongoing and it's possible they may be looking at additional people in this case.

Nashville attorney David Raybin, who is not involved in this case but has been involved in a number of high-profile cases, said as the case moves to the courtroom, any pictures could have a huge impact.

"It might be exculpatory for a particular person. You don't know until you actually look at the forensic evidence. But, certainly, computer evidence and phone evidence will be key in the case," Raybin said.

Several current Vanderbilt football players have been interviewed in the police investigation, and quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels is among those listed to possible testify in a trial.

Head football coach James Franklin addressed the media Friday after the team's practice.

"I think you guys know how prideful I am - how much I care about this community, how much I care about this university, how much I care about this football program. I care about all those tings very deeply, so whenever something doesn't happen that's positive for all three of those things, it breaks my heart," Franklin said.

In a statement Friday, Vanderbilt Vice Chancellor for Public Affairs Beth Fortune said officials "are shocked and saddened by the allegations" and "are focused on doing everything we can to prevent any future incident like this on our campus."

Fortune said the victim is a Vanderbilt student, and the university wants to "convey to her and her family our deepest sympathies and sorrow. We will continue to offer her all of our services and support."

The university plans to review its athletics program to ensure it "reflects our culture of community and respect for others and that our student athletes are held to the same high standards of conduct as all our students," Fortune said.

Four former Vanderbilt football players indicted on aggravated rape charges after assaulting unconscious woman in dorm
Last Updated: 9:12 AM, August 10, 2013
Posted: 9:04 AM, August 10, 2013

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Four former Vanderbilt football players have been indicted on five counts of aggravated rape each of an unconscious 21-year-old student at a campus dormitory in June.

Safety Cory Batey, 19 of Nashville, Tenn.; defensive back Brandon Banks, 19, of Brandywine, Md.; receiver Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie, 19, of Woodville, Miss.; and tight end Brandon Vandenburg, 20, of Indio, Calif. also have been charged with two counts of aggravated sexual battery for an incident tipped to campus officials by surveillance video. Vandenburg also is charged with one count of tampering with evidence and one count of unlawful photography.

While the players were indicted Friday, the district attorney general pointed out that the investigation isn't over yet.

"Although four people are being charged at this time, the investigation is still on-going into the actions of other individuals and the role(s) they may have played in this incident," District Attorney General Torry Johnson said in a statement.

Vanderbilt dismissed the players June 29 and barred them from the campus pending the investigation. Vice chancellor Beth Fortune said Friday that their first thoughts are for the victim, a Vanderbilt student, and that the university will continue to offer her all of its services and support.

"We are shocked and saddened by the allegations that such an assault has taken place on our campus and that they include members of our football team," Fortune said in a statement.

"The charges brought today against the four former Vanderbilt football players allege conduct which is abhorrent and will never be tolerated. We will review our athletics program to be sure that it, like all other programs at the university, reflects our culture of community and respect for others and that our student athletes are held to the same high standards of conduct as all our students."

According to Nashville police, the four men are charged with raping the unconscious woman inside Vandenburg's room at Gillette House dormitory early on June 23. University officials checking the dorm's surveillance in the hallways on an unrelated matter noticed the four's behavior and notified the Vanderbilt University Police Department the night of June 25. Campus police contacted Nashville's sex crimes unit June 26.

"Their investigation has uncovered compelling, unsettling evidence that was presented to the Davidson County Grand Jury earlier today," chief Steve Anderson said in a statement.

Attorney Worrick Robinson said Batey has been taken into custody at his Nashville home. Police said Batey was taken to a hospital for mandatory blood testing before being taken to the Metro Jail with his bond set at $350,000. Police said they are making arrangements for the other three to be taken into custody as well.

Austyn Carta-Samuels, expected to be Vanderbilt's starting quarterback, is five current Commodores listed in the indictment as witnesses for the prosecution if the case goes to trial. The others include offensive lineman Jake Bernstein, wide receiver DeAndre Woods, tight end Dillon van der Wal and snapper Mack Prioleau.

Vanderbilt did not identify the four players until July 15 before the Commodores headed to Alabama for Southeastern Conference media days. None of the four played a snap for Vanderbilt last season.

Batey came in last season as a receiver and redshirted behind Jordan Matthews and Chris Boyd before switching to safety this spring.

Banks also redshirted as a freshman last season. His attorney Grover Collins declined to comment on the indictment but said last month that Banks is innocent and fully cooperating with police.

McKenzie redshirted in 2012, but the 5-foot-8 receiver had four catches for 83 yards in the Commodores' spring game the most yards receiving in the game. His attorney, Jodie Bell, did not immediately return a message by the AP. The 6-foot-5 Vandenburg was considered one of the top junior college tight ends nationally coming out of Xavier College Prep, and he became the first junior college transfer at Vanderbilt since Jordan Rodgers in 2010.

The Commodores, who went 9-4 and won the Music City for their best season since 1915 last season, opens the 2013 season Aug. 29 hosting Mississippi.

Chris Boyd

Three More Indicted In Vanderbilt Sex Crimes Case (http://www.newschannel5.com/story/23159199/three-more-indicted-in-vanderbilt-sex-crimes-case)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Three additional people were indicted Friday in connection with the June 23 sexual assault of a Vanderbilt student in a campus dorm.

Vanderbilt student and Commodore wide receiver Chris Boyd was charged with one felony count of being an accessory after the fact. Authorities said Boyd was accused of taking part in an attempted cover up of the sexual assault through his advice to certain defendants who were already indicted in the case.

Boyd was expected to surrender. Criminal Court Judge Steve Dozier set Boyd's bond at $25,000.

19-year-old Miles Joseph Finley and 20-year-old Dominick Quinzio, both of California, were charged with one felony count each of tampering with evidence. Police said Finley and Quinzio are acquaintances of defendant Brandon Vandenburg.

Finley and Quinzio allegedly tampered with certain electronic evidence in the case.

In California, Finley fled after seeing police outside his California home Friday, but was taken into custody a short time later. The search continues for Quinzio in California. They will be held as fugitives wanted by the state of Tennessee. Their bonds were both set at $150,000 each.

In a statement on Friday regarding the indictment of Vanderbilt student and athlete Chris Boyd, Vice Chancellor for Public Affairs Beth Fortune said:

"All of these allegations, including those brought today, are deeply troubling, and we take them very seriously. Pursuant to the athletic department conduct policy, Mr. Boyd has been suspended from the football team, pending further review. We continue to respect that at this point in the criminal justice process no determination of guilt has been made. We continue to cooperate closely with the District Attorney's office and Metropolitan Nashville Police Department."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A former Vanderbilt football player has been found guilty of raping an unconscious student in a dorm.

It took less than three hours for the jury of nine men and three women to find Cory Batey guilty of aggravated rape, two counts of attempted aggravated rape, facilitation of aggravated rape and three counts of aggravated sexual battery.

Batey, a 22-year-old from Nashville, is one of four former football players charged with rape and accused of violating the female student in a dorm room in June of 2013. He was the only one on trial.

A jury last year convicted Batey and former player Brandon Vandenburg on multiple aggravated rape and aggravated sexual battery charges. The verdicts were thrown out after Davidson County Criminal Court Judge declared a mistrial.
