William Jewell football player facing sex charges

Posted: Updated:

A college football player is accused of sexually assaulting two teenage sisters.

Clay County prosecutors say 20-year-old Blake Brown, a football player at William Jewell College in Liberty, attacked the girls.

Prosecutors charged Brown with deviate sexual assault and sexual misconduct after they say he went to the girls' home in Pleasant Valley on Valentine's Day.

The girls' grandmother, who asked not to be identified, says her elder granddaughter arranged the meeting with Brown through Facebook and let him in.

"I was very surprised to find this happened in my house, and I was sleeping a floor above it," the grandmother said.

Prosecutors say the two began to have sex, but the girl asked Brown to stop.  Charging documents show Brown refused.

Investigators say Brown then told the older girl to get her younger sister. They say Brown then attacked the younger girl with the older sister holding her down.  All these months later, their grandmother says those emotional wounds are slow to heal.

"The younger one is still rattled," she said.  "(He) is old enough to know better than to go to someone's house in the middle of the night and be sneaked into the room by a much younger girl."

The teen's grandmother said the two are trying to move forward, but glad Brown could soon have to answer for what allegedly happened.

A spokesperson for William Jewell says Brown has been suspended from the school and all school activities.

A hearing has been set for Sept. 20.
