Woman Accused of Lodging False Rape Accusations When College Player Stopped Texting Her

Article here. Excerpt:

'A football player for the University of Oklahoma was accused of rape and slapped with an emergency protective order this month, however, after police began an investigation; it appears that the charges were false and lodged by the woman after the player rejected her.

The Sooner’s starting running back, Rodney Anderson, found himself accused of rape after first meeting a woman named Courtney Thornton at a bar on November 16. Thornton alleged that Anderson took her back to her apartment, and then raped her. The 23-year-old Thornton applied for an order of protection on December 4 when news broke of the accusations.
However, after an investigation, police say that the woman’s story fell apart. The charges were deemed unprovable, according to the DA.

“There are certainly cases where we just simply can’t prove something, and so we will decline [to pursue charges] due to insufficient evidence,” District Attorney Greg Mashburn said on December 14. “But I think, in this case, it was important for us to tell the whole story, so people understand the facts that were presented to us.”'
