A jury has acquitted former Wisconsin Badgers wide receiver Quintez Cephus on charges alleging he sexually assaulted two female students.

Jurors delivered their verdict on Friday after deliberating for just 30 minutes. The Wisconsin State Journal reports that Cephus testified just before the jury got the case that the women wanted to have sex with him. The women testified they were too drunk to give consent.

Former Wisconsin Badgers wide receiver Quintez Cephus has told jurors that the two women he is accused of sexually assaulting wanted to have sex with him.

Cephus took the stand Friday as his trial neared an end. He says when the women arrived at his apartment last year, one immediately went into his bedroom, summoned him in and removed her clothes. He says the other followed behind.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports that the case is expected to go to the jury later Friday.
