Ex-Baylor DE Tevin Elliott Indicted In Texas Assault Case

WACO (August 28, 2012) -- Former Baylor defensive end Tevin Elliott has been indicted on three counts of sexual assault.

A McLennan County grand jury indicted Elliott on Monday.

Investigators say two counts refer to an alleged assault at an April 15 party in Waco. The Waco Tribune-Herald reports that details of the other count are sealed because Elliott has not been arrested in that case.

Baylor suspended Elliott April 27 for unspecified team violations. He was charged with sexual assault April 30 and freed on $10,000 bond.

Central Arkansas head football coach Clint Conque says Tevin Elliott has been suspended for the game against Mississippi on Saturday.

Conque made the announcement Tuesday, a day after a Texas grand jury indicted Elliott on three counts of sexual assault. Elliott's attorney Jason Darling says the initial allegations are untrue and the sexual encounter was consensual.

Conque said he wouldn't comment on a situation that may have occurred in another state while Elliott was attending another institution. He said Elliott and his family were upfront and forthcoming about the situation when he discussed the possibility of transferring to Central Arkansas.

Conque also said Elliott has met all expectations of the coaching staff.

Elliott's attorney, Jason Darling, says the allegations are untrue and the April 15 sexual encounter was consensual. Darling knows nothing about the third count.

Elliott had 63 tackles and eight sacks in two seasons with Baylor. He since transferred to Central Arkansas.
