    Jury to continue deliberations Friday in Brandon Banks’ rape trial

    The jury failed to reach a verdict Thursday in day four of the rape trial against former Vanderbilt University football player Brandon Banks.
    The jury deliberated for six hours until 8 p.m. when a juror told told Judge Monte Watkins the team was tired. They were then released for the evening and will report back to the courthouse at 9 a.m. Friday.
    The jury, which consists of 16 local people —12 women, 4 men, and 6 minorities, is charged with deciding whether or not Banks is guilty in the rape of an unconscious female student in an on-campus dorm room in June 2013.
    Thursday was the fourth day of his trial, which began*with two former Vanderbilt University football players taking the stand in his defense.
    Former teammate Ladarius Banks was the first witness to testify. He told the court “he did get picked on” when referring to Banks’ relationship with the team.


    Another former player, Brian Kimbrough, took the stand next, saying, “Guys called him names because he didn’t go out.”

    Their words come after Banks took the stand in his own defense Wednesday, telling the courtroom he was often bullied and called “gay” by other teammates, which he claims had a hand in the peer pressure he felt to take photos and partake in the rape.
    After their testimonies, both the state prosecutors and Banks’ defense team rested their cases and closing arguments were heard into early afternoon

    BREAKING: After more than 14 hours of deliberation the jury finds Brandon Banks GUILTY OF ONE COUNT OF AGGRAVATED AND ONE COUNT OF SEXUAL BATTERY in the Vanderbilt rape case.

    Banks will return for sentencing by the judge in the next few weeks. He faces a minimum of 15 years. He should have taken the 10 year plea offer.

    Banks will now join Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey serving time in prison for the rape of an unconscious female in a Vanderbilt dorm four years ago.

    Good, wish I had a sentencing date!
