    Does this unbelievably long process commence again today? What happened to fair and speedy trial? Hasn't this been almost two years?

    Friendly request to reserve the nickname "DWill" for the late Darrent Williams. Thanks.

    That's part of the plea bargain being discussed.

    no such thing as fair and speed trial anymore lol. In fairness, William's defense team has requested about 3 delays on the this trial. So it's not the judicial system's fault.

    Strange scene early: I walked into the courtroom just before 9 a.m., saw Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder sitting front row and assumed he was there to support Williams. But when the judge asked any prospective jurors to raise their hand in oath, up went Holder. In a crazy and unlikely scenario, with one of his athletes up for trial, Holder was selected as part of the jury pool. He was never called up for questioning and it looks like he sorted the situation out during a recess and has been dismissed from duty. But still, what a strange occurrence.

    Someone had to be wanting to play a joke. The odds of this happening is ridiculous.

    looks like he's been dismissed as a juror. but how weird would this be?

    I don't know about that. Sandusky went from being arrested in November to already convicted. That was fast.

    This may have been posted before, but I'm not going to go looking for it.

    What are Darrell Williams chances of wearing orange on Eddie Sutton court if he is acquited?

    Personally, I'd love to see him playing again AND acquited, but believe in the justice system to find the truth.

    So many young men screw up (luckily I was NEVER caught) at this age partying in college.

    At least he's not Sandusky.

    I think he has a good chance of playing. However, I would say not being as bad as Sandusky is kind of a stupid saying because he committed probably the most heinous crime in sports history. Its kind of like saying its not like he is Ted Bundy...either way if he did any of the alleged actions purported then it is not good nor a good reflection on OSU.

    It would seem that the prosecuter is basing her case on circumstantial evidense.

    Seems like mostly direct to me. A witness that said she saw Darrell put his hands down her friends pants is direct as is a witness saying he put his hands down my pants. Circumstantial is more of the defense. There were no clothes ripped, there were no doctors visits, there were no scratches or injuries. This leads to the conclusion that nothing happened, but isn't directly saying nothing happened.

    Stillwater News Press has been providing nice coverage on this case with considerable detail of witness testimony.
