(Exclusive) Former Ohio State Football Player Amir Riep Found Not Guilty Of Raping A White Woman Speaks About Proving His Innocence & Still Working Towards The NFL
In 2020, officers charged former Ohio State University standout football players Amir Riep and his teammate Jahsen Wint with two counts of rape and one count of kidnapping after a 19-year-old woman told authorities the athletes raped her.
Accused of rape by a white woman, the head coach kicked the two NFL hopefuls off the team a day after encountering the unidentified woman. The two were later found not guilty of all charges in February of 2023.
After waiting for three years to prove their innocence, the former roommates are putting their lives back together again. The now 24-year-old Amir Riep exclusively shared with The Shade Room how he plans to move forward and how his father’s support made a difference before his passing.
