Vanderbilt Rape Suspect Talks About Case Against Him

CREATED Feb 25, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Brandon Vandenburg is again speaking out in an exclusive interview about the criminal case against him.

Vandenburg is one of four former Vanderbilt football players charged with aggravated rape and sexual assault in connection with an alleged attack on a 21-year-old student in an on-campus dorm last August.

"I think I'm being railroaded," said Vandenburg. "People who I trusted have turned against me."

Vandenburg was one of the nation's top tight end prospects and prized recruit for then-Vanderbilt coach James Franklin.

Among other things Vandenburg talked about the Vanderbilt investigation into the alleged assault that found "insufficient evidence upon which to find that you engaged in non-consensual sexual intercourse."

"I see more and more truth coming out as we go further in the case," said Vandenburg. 

And he continues to maintain he is innocent.

"One day the truth will be out and I will be vindicated," said Vandenburg.

His trial is set for August.
