VERMILLION, S.D. – A University of South Dakota football player accused of attempted rape in an alleged attack in October is now facing a new charge.
Clay County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Tiffany Husby says 21-year-old Dale Williamson turned himself in Thursday after officials issued an arrest warrant for second-degree rape.
The State’s Attorney’s Office didn’t return a phone message seeking more information.
Husby says the charge is separate from the felony second-degree attempted rape charge Williamson faces in an alleged Oct. 22 attack.
Police say a woman accuses Williamson and 20-year-old Danny Rambo, another football player, of entering a bedroom where she was having consensual sex with another player and assaulting her at the off-campus residence the three players shared. Rambo is also charged.
Williamson is a sophomore reserve defensive back from Donalsonville, Georgia.
