Attorneys for accused ex-Vandy football player ask to withdraw

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Two attorneys who are representing a former Vanderbilt football player accused in the rape of a woman in an on-campus dorm room are seeking to withdraw from the case.

Brandon Vandenburg is among four former Vandy players charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. Vandenburg is additionally charged with one count of tampering with evidence and one count of unlawful photography.

Police say the investigation revealed the four allegedly raped an unconscious victim inside Vandenburg's room at Gillette House dormitory in the early morning hours of Sunday, June 23.

According to the indictment, Vandenburg photographed the victim and distributed that picture.

The district attorney's office said the attorneys filed a motion this week to withdraw, and that motion is set to be heard Friday, Nov. 15.
