In 2010, former Oklahoma State player Darrell Williams had been accused, and then convicted, of sexually assaulting two women at an off-campus party.
He was convicted on two accounts of rape by instrumentation and one count of sexual battery. Although he was not sentenced to any jail time he was ordered to register as a sex offender.
On Tuesday, 22nd of April 2014, an Oklahoma court overturned the conviction.
In a 10-page decision that was released on the same day, the Court of Criminal Appeals said that testimonies from jurors at a special hearing held last year indicated that at least two jurors had made unauthorized visits to the crime scene and that the visits had been discussed during deliberations.
