Jury starts deliberating in Vanderbilt ex-player’s trial

Jurors have begun deliberating in the case of a former Vanderbilt University football player accused of raping an unconscious female student.
    
Four former players have been charged with rape and are accused of violating the woman in a dorm room in June 2013. Cory Batey, a 22-year-old from Nashville who is being tried alone this week, is charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery.
    
Jurors have seen graphic videos and images throughout this week’s trial. Police have testified that they recovered the videos and photos from the cellphones of the former players.
    
Batey and another player were tried and convicted last year. The verdicts were thrown out after lawyers discovered that the jury foreman had been a victim of statutory rape.
