HOLTON, Kan. (KSNT) – A jury has found 22-year-old Jacob Ewing guilty of multiple counts of rape and aggravated criminal sodomy. After the jury delivered the verdict, Ewing’s bond was revoked and he was taken into custody.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the woman told jurors Thursday that 22-year-old Jacob Ewing, of Holton, sodomized her and forced her to perform oral sex after a September 2014 party.
She is among five women the former state football champion is charged with sexually assaulting. She said things became “blurry” after she drank two beers and a shot. She later recalled being naked on a floor.
The trial is the second for Ewing and involves two of his accusers. He was acquitted during an April trial of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl when he was 19. Trials involving other women are scheduled later this year.
The verdict comes after the man was acquitted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl, in April. Ewing is charged with sex crimes in multiple cases.
