2 Ohio State Football Players Charged With Rape And Kidnapping

Tom Gantert

Police arrested Ohio State Buckeyes Amir Riep and Jahsen Wint on Thursday and charged them with rape and kidnapping.

Columbus, OH – Two Ohio State Buckeyes’ football players were kicked off the team Wednesday after they were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly holding a woman down and raping her.

Columbus police said the incident occurred at about 9:45 p.m. on Feb. 4 in the 2000-block of Sawmill Place Blvd. when Ohio State defensive back Amir Riep was having sex with a 19-year-old woman, The Lantern reported.

The affidavit said Riep and the woman were having sex when she changed her mind and moved away from him.

That’s when Riep’s teammate, Ohio State defensive back Jahsen Wint entered the room and asked to join in.

The woman told police that Riep grabbed her by the neck and forced her onto her hands and knees so he could rape her, The Lantern reported.

The affidavit said that after he was finished with her, Riep held the woman down while Wint orally penetrated her by force.

The woman told police that afterwards, as she cried, Riep forced her to film a video and made her say that the sex was consensual, The Lantern reported.

She said Riep laughed at her and then he took her home, according to the affidavit.

Both football players were arrested on Tuesday and charged with first-degree rape and kidnapping, The Lantern reported.

Ohio State Football Head Coach Ryan Day kicked both of the accused players off the team on Wednesday, ESPN reported.

"I am not making any statement on the criminal charges, but it is clear they did not live up to our standards and my expectations," Day said in a statement on Wednesday. "The athletics department will make sure they both continue to have access to the health and well-being resources available to students and student-athletes. Due to the ongoing criminal investigation, I will not be commenting further."

They appeared in Franklin County Municipal Court on Thursday for an arraignment, Eleven Warriors reported.

Riep’s bond was set at $100,000 and Wint’s bond was set at $75,000.

Neither football player entered a plea but their attorneys said both would be pleading not guilty at their next court appearance on Feb. 21, Eleven Warriors reported.

Wint’s attorney, Sam Shamansky, said the defensive backs were cooperating fully and had turned themselves in to the police when they became aware of the warrants.

He said Wint had agreed to provide a DNA swab and “completely and honestly answered all questions asked of him,” Eleven Warriors reported.

“I can tell you based on what I know, and based on my client's alleged involvement, that once this case is fully reviewed, I'm going to submit that there was absolutely no crime committed,” Shamansky told the court. “Most rapists don't hang around, answer questions and then turn themselves in. The reason that Mr. Wint did all of those things is because he is most certainly not a rapist.”

Wint played in every game of Buckeyes’ 2019 winning season and Riep played in 13 out of 14 games, The Lantern reported.

Both players had one more season of eligibility left when they were dismissed from the team.

The d is capitalized in Duke and I think you may need a lesson in how both of those incidences concluded retiredafvet.

I used a considerable amount of energy cheering on Kavanaugh, and I'll be darned, he has a life time appointment and hopefully Trump will appoint two more before it's over.

Fuck YOU and the “d” in duke you dumb fuck😂😂😂😭😭😭😭😭😭. Yes retard, look at those incidents (just gonna act like I didn’t see the “incidences” being used by a grown ass man smfh)concluded, the point is they weren’t assumed guilty by you people when they were accused. Honestly, I can understand why Trump and Kavanaugh might’ve been given the benefit of doubt due to the political aspects behind their incidents. But the “duke lacrosse team”?! The ONLY reason YOU didn’t just assume they were guilty is because... Well, you know😐

I am convinced that you’re just plain stupid dude 😂😂😂😭😭😭😭😭😭. You are so programmed by the racist indoctrination your scumbag parents subjected you to that you can’t help but draw conclusions so far off that you seem to be mentally impaired, whenever you engage in discourse with black folks. The shit is funny but disturbing, because your racist ass actually had the power of arrest and a firearm patrolling neighborhoods that are inhabited by people you are biased against.

Yes you idiot... I brought it up because they were ACCUSED of rape as well but your cross burning ass didn’t just assume they were guilty. Are you really that dense that you couldn’t gather that on your own pig?

Click on the link provided by LEO0301 and have someone read it so that you might have a shot at understanding it (not likely) Even Wikipedia got it right.

Looks like your inner ghetto is back (over use of emoji) guess you just can't hide the 13/60 thing, it'd in the DNA. Love ya retiredafvet and for God sake watch out for those rake handles.

Simple points just fly over your head, then when you get called on your lack of comprehension you just ignore the SIMPLE LOGIC being shown to you and and pretend the other guy has it wrong😂😂😭😭💀💀💀💀

Is that a sly way of saying you thought the duke guys were really guilty? Wtf is wrong with you?

Dude, why did you not assume the duke players guilty the way you assume these guys are? 😂😂😭😭💀💀💀💀💀 I cant believe I have to dumb this down for you.

Maybe more emojis would help? It's worth a shot and once again, watch out for those rake handles.

Pretty sure the stupid one is the person who can't even remember what they said two minutes ago, black hole . This is what you stated and I provided information you may not have been aware of - "Where was this energy for the duke lacrosse team?" See how the two go hand in hand? Probably not, I suspect.

Smfh... Christ you people are DUMB. Look, I KNOW the duke Lacrosse team had their charges dropped you fucking moron. The question of guilt was never asked. The question is “WHY WERE THEY NOT ASSUMED GUILTY BY YOU PEOPLE THE SAME WAY THESE GUYS ARE?” I really hope you and your butt buddy klan pal are just pretending to be this slow 😂😭😭😭💀

The one with the intellect of a snail is you, black hole....sun. Read how the conversation started. If you can't see how me and a few others thought your reference was something other than what you intended, go to a natural party and have them tell you that you are a dumb ass.

Here you go again with your lack of comprehension regarding context you fucking moron. Yes, look at the way the conversation started you dumb fuck. Your butt buddy klan pal made a comment suggesting these guys are guilty.

I questioned his assumption of their guilt and used examples of white athletes and public figures that you people presumed innocent, and asked why the change of energy.

How you gathered “he must think the duke lacrosse team was guilty” is beyond me. These guys weren’t found guilty, so it wouldn’t really make sense for me to be questioning what your remedial ass thought I was. How on earth did you live so long being this amount of stupid?

LEO0301

"I've" what blackhole? The fact is I'm not the only one who can't figure out what in the hell you're trying to say most of the time. Could it be it's you who is the moron? I say, YES!

Quasar704
Quasar704

I k ow you’re not “the only o e” because many of you are DUMB AS FUCK😂😂😂😭😭😭😭. If you understood “CONTEXT” it wouldn’t be hard to figure out what I said judging the fact that these guys were arrested... There was no trial, there are no facts to reference, there is nothing to go on but the accusation but somehow this pillow biting buddy of yours knows they’re guilty.

You can’t figure that out because you think it’s rational to assume they’re guilty as well

LEO0301

Haha, here's the funny part. I retired when I was 50 while you will continue to work until your last breath. Now who's the dumb one? I suggest you go back and take some remedial communication classes. I sincerely hope you take me up on my suggestion.

This may interest you or anyone else who cares...I never read anything this loser @Quasar704 writes. He is largely incoherent and his arguments do not stand up at all. Plus, he's a raving racist and police hater. I'm sure he thinks he's getting a lot of ink here, but I bet 9/10ths of us don't read his responses and I don't read any response to him after the first two. So

Seriously I’m gonna “work until my last breath”? 😐 Dude... Please, Shut the fuck up 😂😂😂😂😭😭😭😭😭😭. You’re not about to pull me into a feminine, adolescent argument over who has more money. I’ve already told you once, I doubt your pension is more than my salary, you may live more “comfortably” than I do because you no longer and have no children to support, but you are not earning the same as I am.

With that being said, yes... You’re still “the dumb one”, how your pension related to your lack of comprehension is beyond me and the fact that you even tried to equate the 2 proves you are indeed “the dumb one”😂😂😂😭😭😭😭

I’m surprised you can even spell the word gibberish... I normally ignore you, The reason why I do is because you and that other jack ass @HonorYourHeroes are the absolute dumbest people that I have ever encountered online.

I think I’m gonna go back to ignoring you, once I give you the slightest bit of attention you get carried away and start using words that you can’t spell or quite understand the definition of and I feel bad clowning mentally impaired people even if they are racist pigs. So back to The land of obscurity you go

Those College football players are nothing but animals. They should be sent to prison for 20 years. They might find out what it feels like to be raped by another animal. That way they will know how their rape victim felt. They act like dogs.
