Former Cowboys running back Joseph Randle took an aggressive approach to insisting his innocence against rape accusations when he yelled his denial at a judge in court Tuesday.
Randle, 27, was arrested in September after a woman accused him of raping her for hours in her Kansas apartment. He was charged with 11 counts, including rape, aggravated criminal sodomy, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated battery.
In front of Sedgwick County District Court Judge Kevin O’Connor Tuesday, the woman claimed that the troubled former athlete punched her and then raped her after downing a bottle of apple-flavored Crown Royal whiskey, according to the Wichita Eagle.
After hours of the alleged assault, the woman escaped her apartment and knocked on her neighbors’ door, half naked, asking for help.
While the woman made her case, Randle repeatedly spoke directly to the judge to assert his innocence, shouting “She didn’t tell me” and “She never said nothing. She never said no. So how am I supposed to know?” according to the Wichita Eagle.
Randle is due back in court for his arraignment on Feb. 25, despite his attorneys’ pleas that he isn’t competent to stand trial.
