NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – News 2 has learned jury selection for former Vanderbilt football player Brandon Vandenburg will be held in Memphis.
Once jurors are selected, they will be brought to Nashville to hear the case, which is set to begin June 13.
The trial is expected to last between four to six days.
A status hearing will be held on Friday in Nashville. Vandenburg, who currently lives in California, is not required to attend.
The former Vanderbilt student is accused of raping an unconscious woman inside an on campus dorm in June 2013.
He is charged with five counts of aggravated rape, two counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of unlawful photography.
He and former teammate Cory Batey were previously tried together and convicted on all charges before a judge issued a mistrial last year due to juror misconduct.
Batey has since been tried separately and was found guilty on one count of aggravated rape and three counts of aggravated sexual battery, one count of facilitation of aggravated rape and two counts of attempted aggravated rape.
Two others accused in the case, Jaborian “Tip” McKenzie and Brandon Banks, have yet to go to trial. They also face five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery.
