Former Baylor football player Tevin Elliott was convicted Thursday on two counts of sexually assaulting a former Baylor student in 2012.

Jurors in Waco’s 54th State District Court deliberated about an hour before rejecting the 22-year-old former defensive end’s claim that his relationship with the woman was consensual.

Three other women testified that Elliott also sexually assaulted them, and another told the jury that Elliott followed her into her bedroom, locked the door and would not let her leave.

The punishment phase of the trial will begin later this afternoon.

Elliott is eligible for probation and faces from two to 20 years in prison on each count.
