STILLWATER, Okla. - The Rev. Jesse Jackson is expected to be in Stillwater Thursday for a public forum on the conviction of former Oklahoma State basketball player Darrell Williams.
Last month, a jury found Williams guilty on two counts of rape by instrumentation after two women testified he sexually assaulted them at a party in 2010.
The Oklahoma State University chapter of the NAACP got involved because Williams' supporters believe race was a factor. Both of his accusers and all the jury members were white.
On Thursday, Jackson is expected to participate in a public forum about the trial.
Williams is scheduled for formal sentencing Friday. The jury has recommended one year in prison on each count.
