Ex-Baylor DE Shawn Oakman Arrested & Charged With Rape


Shawn Oakman’s NFL future is hanging by a thread, after being accused of sexual assault last week, the ex-Baylor defensive end was arrested and officially charged with rape.

Waco police on Wednesday arrested former Baylor University football player Shawn Oakman on charges he sexually assaulted a fellow student after leaving a Waco nightclub with her early Sunday morning.

Oakman, an NFL draft prospect, told Waco police detectives the sexual contact was consensual.

The affidavit, drafted by Waco police Detective Sam Key, said the woman met Oakman at a Baylor-area bar on Speight Avenue and Oakman asked her if she wanted to go to his residence. They walked to Oakman’s duplex and Oakman “forced” her into a bedroom, according to the affidavit.

Oakman “forcibly removed” the woman’s clothes, “forced” her onto the bed and sexually assaulted her, the affidavit alleges.

The woman left, but told police she left her panties at the duplex and lost an earring in the bedroom.

Oakman — a Philadelphia native — is innocent until proven guilty, but his dreams of being drafted have likely gone up in smoke.
