Transcript for Jury Selection Begins in Vanderbilt University Rape Case
We'll turn now to a headline making case out of Nashville where four former football players from Vanderbilt are accused of sexually assaulting a female student when she was drunk and unconscious. A jury trial begins in two of the men. Reporter: This morning a jury is expected to be seated for this high-profile trial. Two of four former Vanderbilt football players accused in the alleged sexual assault of a young woman in a school dorm. When did you first learn that your athletic scholarship was potentially at risk? When I spoke with coach franklin. Reporter: Brandon vanden berg and Cory beatty, the first to stand trial and facing multiple counts of aggravated rape and sexual battery, both pleading not guilty. I don't see a major problem here. Reporter: Police say the vic was vandage berg's former girfriend and the most explosive evidence the jury is expected to see, some of what happened was caught on the dorm surveillance videos and police say vanden berg took pictures of the sexual assault on his cell phone and sent around to friends. I found images of the victim being brutally raped off of your defendant's cell phone. Reporter: In June of 201 police say vanden berg just 20 years old and his then girlfriend were coming back to Gillette hall after a night of heavy drinking. Police say the surveillance video shows the young man carrying her limp body to vapiden berg's second floor room where three of the men are accused of raping her but vapiden berg's defense attorney says that video doesn't tell the full story. We're missing some angles that we've been told we were missing so we want to see where those cameras are and see what people viewed. Reporter: Defense lawyers for the player say the young men were too drunk to remember what happened that night. If convicted they could spend decades in jail.
