Marco Brewer, a 3-star offensive lineman from Corvallis, Oregon, who committed to UCLA in June, has been charged with rape and other counts of sexual violence, according to a report from Lillian Schrock of the Corvallis Times-Gazette.
Brewer, who is 17, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday, according to the report. Specifically, reports Schrock, Brewer is being first-degree rape, first-degree unlawful sexual penetration, first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of second-degree sexual abuse. Per Oregon state law, anyone aged 15-17 facing these charges are to be tried as an adult, and if found guilty, sentenced as an adult.
The documents that allege Brewer of these charges paint a grim picture, as Schrock writes:
The charging document alleges that on May 14 of this year, Brewer engaged in sexual intercourse with a person who was incapable of consent by reason of mental incapacitation or physical helplessness.
