Cleveland Anchor Found Not Guilty Of Rape And Kidnapping

((HT: Newsnet5/WEWS-TV Cleveland))

The HQ has reported on the case of now-former Cleveland sports anchor Terry Brooks since he was up on rape and kidnapping charges last August. A grand jury indicted Brooks on four counts of rape, four counts of attempted rape and one count of kidnapping.

The alleged victim told police that she and Brooks met for drinks at a bar back in September of 2009. She then claimed Brooks drove her back to his home and raped her. The woman didn’t report the alleged incident to police, however, until January of 2010.

During the trial, the alleged victim testified that she had three or four drinks and said she felt like she had no control during sexual acts that happened between the two. Brooks’ attorneys, however, argued the sex was consensual.
