    Ex-Baylor frat president indicted on 4 counts of sex assault won't go to prison - CNN

    "CNN)Even though Jacob Walter Anderson was indicted on four counts of sexual assault, the ex-fraternity president won't spend a single day in prison.
    Instead, a plea agreement allowed the former Baylor University student to plead no contest to a lesser charge of unlawful restraint.
    That means if the 24-year-old successfully completes three years of deferred probation and pays a $400 fine, his criminal record will be wiped clean of the charge, CNN affiliate KWKT said.
    Anderson will have to complete alcohol, drug and psychological treatment plans. But he won't have to register as a sex offender in Texas."
    "I have been through hell and back and my life has been forever turned upside down," the victim wrote in a letter to her attorney.
    "This guy violently raped me multiple times, choked me, and when I blacked out, he dumped me face down on the ground and left me to die. When I woke up aspirating up my own vomit, my friends immediately took me to the hospital."
    The victim's attorney, Vic Feazell, was also livid.
    "In my 40 years of practicing law, I've never seen a sweetheart deal like this," Feazell said.

    Woman Who Accused Former Fraternity President Of Rape Outraged He Got No Jail Time
    rbbm
    "DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP)
    — A Texas judge on Monday accepted a plea bargain allowing a former Baylor University student accused of raping a woman at a fraternity party to avoid serving jail time, marking at least the third time the judge has approved probation for men accused of sexually assaulting Baylor students.

    Texas District 19 Judge Ralph Strother’s decision to accept the plea deal sparked outrage from the woman who accused Jacob Walter Anderson of repeatedly raping her. The woman says she was plied with a drink of punch at the party in 2016 and became disoriented. Anderson, the woman said, led her behind a tent and assaulted her while she was gagged and choked.

    “He stole my body, virginity and power over my body,” the woman said in court, according to a family spokesman.

    Anderson, a resident of Garland, had been indicted on sexual assault charges and the deal allowed him to plead no contest to a lesser charge of unlawful restraint. A no contest plea means a person does not admit guilt, but will offer no defense. Anderson was expelled from Baylor after a university investigation."

    The plea bargain and sentence is over - what further information will be released by prosecutors or LE?

    The victim and family will have much to say - but where will that go now that all is said and done?

    prosecutor only accept a plea because they fear they might not be able to get a conviction at a trial, and the defendant will walk with a not guilty verdict
