LSU Former Player Found Not Guilty


A state judge has found former LSU running back Charles Scott not guilty in a sexual battery case. 

The 24-year-old Scott was booked into the Ascension Parish Jail in November 2011 after allegedly raping an 18-year-old woman at his Prairieville home. 

He was arraigned later on a charge of sexual battery, a lesser offense than the crime of simple rape he originally was accused of committing. In February 2012, Scott entered a plea of not guilty.

The case was heard Tuesday by state District Judge Jessie LeBlanc. 

If convicted, Scott could have faced up to 10 years in prison. 

Scott started his final two seasons at LSU, the best of them his junior season when he rushed for 1,174 yards and a Southeastern Conference-leading 18 touchdowns.
