Oklahoma State Basketball's Darrell Williams Charged With Sexual Assault

Oklahoma State's starting forward Darrell Williams was charged Monday with four felony counts that he inappropriately touched two women without their consent. He was also suspended by the university pending the results of the court action.

According to court documents, Williams is accused of holding two women against their will while he reached into their pants at an off-campus party Dec. 12 that lasted into the following morning in Stillwater. Two of the rape by instrumentation counts involve the same woman.

Williams did not enter a plea and was not required to. His initial court appearance was continued until March 7. He was freed on $5,000 bond.

No other Oklahoma Stat basketball players were charged, though police affidavits allege several players attended the party. They also say some players "surrounded" one of the women. Six players were on prosecutors' list of potential witnesses.

"It goes without saying that we take the charges very seriously," coach Travis Ford said in a statement. "Darrell will not travel or play while the legal issues are addressed."
