Texas Judge Allows Former Baylor Frat President To Sidestep Rape Charge
Ex-Baylor University fraternity president Jacob Walter Anderson avoided jail time after pleading no contest to an unlawful restraint charge. He had been indicted on four counts of sexual assault stemming from an incident at a 2016 off-campus party.
A victim says she's "devastated" after a controversial plea bargain in an alleged rape case. Jacob Anderson, a former fraternity president at Baylor University, was accused of raping a teenage sophmore in 2016. He will avoid jail time after pleading to a lesser charge of unlawful restraint in a deal approved by a judge who has allowed light sentences in other cases involving sexual assault allegations.
This petition is the second created in the wake of the trial. A former Baylor student, Erin Albin, created an online petition opposing the plea deal signed by Judge Strother -- as of this writing that petition has more than 112,000 signatures.
