New Accused Rapist Wants To Enroll at Tennessee

Larry BurtonSenior Writer ISeptember 10, 2009

Maybe he just likes orange, (Oklahoma State and Tennessee share that color) maybe he didn't want to buy a new wardrobe, or maybe he just heard that Lane Kiffin likes to have an accused rapist or two on the team.

Whatever the reason, Jamal Mosely, who quit the Oklahoma State team for personal reasons following his first rape accusation, has told friends that he plans on enrolling at Tennessee, according to The Daily O'Collegian in Stillwater, Oklahoma.


Tennessee has yet to make a statement regarding this news but that doesn't mean the press wires have been silent about it.

Apparently, after being accused of raping a female in August, he has now been accused of raping another student in March. This according to the Tulsa World.


Evidence was collected in the first rape after a rape examination, but the student has since decided not to cooperate any further. She wanted to move on with her life and try and forget the harrowing incident.

The second accuser seems ready to press charges, but investigators have been quiet about the facts surrounding the case so far.

Tennessee already has one convicted rapist on the roster, Daniel Hood. There are apologists who say the victim forgave him, yes even parents of murdered children often forgive the murderer. That is a Christian act and speaks volumes only of the victims, not the criminal.

There are those who will say he did not really rape the girl, but even GoVolsXtra reported that he was in fact a convicted rapist.


They reported, Hood was tried as a juvenile and found to be delinquent by a jury “on the basis that he had committed the adult offenses of kidnapping and aggravated rape,” according to records from a 2006 appeal.

Court documents reveal details of the incident, including duct tape being placed over 70 percent of the victim’s body and the use of an object in the assault.

The victim, who was 14 at the time of the Aug. 11, 2003, incident at Hood’s family home in Sullivan County, was a relative. A 17-year-old who participated in the crime, Robert Sanico, was tried as an adult and is serving a 10-year sentence at Northwest Correctional Complex in Tiptonville, Tenn.

Hood, meanwhile, was placed in the custody of the Department of Children’s Services. After completing a rehabilitation program at Mountain View Youth Development Center in Dandridge, DCS transferred Hood to a group home in West Knoxville.

While there are those who may commend Kiffin for giving this troubled boy a second chance, others, including Tennessee fans feel it casts a shadow over what being a Volunteer is all about.

While Tennessee has not yet allowed Mosely to enroll, and Kiffin has not signed him to the team, many hope that Kiffin will not allow Mosely to ever wear "The other orange" and become a Vol.

One rapist may be one too many, two, if Mosely is ever convicted, will make people question the program.
