UNCC QB Found Not Guilty in Rape Trial

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The jury found UNC Charlotte quarterback Kevin Olsen not guilty on all charges Wednesday.

Olsen was charged with three counts of second-degree rape and one count of second-degree sex offense for a reported attack on a woman in an off-campus apartment.  

Olsen was indicted in May 2017 and pleaded not guilty in September 2017 after rejecting a plea deal. 

Olsen's attorney George Laughrun told Channel 9 Olsen was ready to defend himself and rejected the plea deal so he would have the opportunity to prove his innocence at trial.  

The defense argued that Olsen did not rape, or even injure his accuser. 

The accuser said her relationship with Olsen was tumultuous. She claimed Olsen attacked her and became enraged after she got a text message.
