Jahsen Wint forcefully sex to girl
The complaint alleges that Wint pushed the woman ‘down by the neck’ onto her hands and knees and raped her in that position.
Then Riep allegedly held the woman down while Wint forced her to perform oral sex on him.
Wint allegedly held the victim by the face to prevent her from ‘getting away or getting his penis out of her mouth.’

Amir Riep views after rape
After several minutes, they stopped and Riep told the woman that she needed to state her name and say what happened was ‘consensual on a video recording while laughing at her,’ according to police.
Riep then told the woman she needed to shower before he drove her back to her home.
Officials said in court that police have the video recording.
Shamansky, one of the highest-profile defense lawyers in Columbus, said Wint cooperated fully with police before Shamansky began representing him and has expressed his willingness to take a lie-detector test.
‘I’m curious whether his alleged victim is willing to do the same. I’m guessing the answer is no,’ Shamanksy said.
Riep’s attorney, Karl Schneider, said the young man is cooperating with investigators and is ‘sad and depressed’ about Ohio State’s decision to release him.
Riep’s father, Mario Riep, posted a message on Facebook proclaiming his son’s innocence: ‘At this time the family is supporting Amir. Amir is an inspiring father, son, and man. We fully stand behind him during this situation. Please continue to pray for Amir and all involved in this situation. #NOTGUILTY’
