Former Wisconsin football player testifies at his rape trial


MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Former Wisconsin Badgers wide receiver Quintez Cephus has told jurors that the two women he is accused of sexually assaulting wanted to have sex with him.

Cephus took the stand Friday as his trial neared an end. He says when the women arrived at his apartment last year, one immediately went into his bedroom, summoned him in and removed her clothes. He says the other followed behind.

The 21-year-old Cephus is charged with second- and third-degree sexual assault for alleged attacks on the two 18-year-old women. They testified this week that they were too drunk to consent.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports that the case is expected to go to the jury later Friday.
