Former Georgia Football Player Pleads Guilty To Rape Charges

On Monday, former University of Georgia linebacker Adam Anderson pleaded down felony rape charges to misdemeanor sexual battery.

Anderson’s agreement caps his sentence to 12 months, which was half of what prosecutors had asked for, according to court documents.

Andserson is also barred from contacting his two accusers, he must agree to a permanent protection order, and he cannot use social media to discuss the case.

According to Fox 5 Atlanta, “The charges stem from Anderson’s arrest in November 2021 after a 21-year-old woman accused him of sexually assaulting her at a party on the morning of Oct. 29, 2021.”

“According to the incident report pertaining to the initial allegations, a woman said she went to an Athens residence on Oct. 29 after having some drinks and woke up on a bed while Anderson was having sexual intercourse with her. The woman told officers the sex was not consensual and that she was able to leave the residence,” Fox 5 Atlanta added. “A second woman accused Anderson of assaulting her in Oconee County in an incident that allegedly happened in October 2020.”

Georgia Football suspended Anderson while he was being investigated by Athens-Clarke County Police for the alleged rape. He surrendered himself voluntarily and was released on a $25,000 bond.
