Closing arguments in the trial of two former Vanderbilt football players charged with rape began today and will continue tomorrow morning, the Tennessean reports. Assistant District Attorney Jan Norman delivered a 36-minute argument for the state followed by a nearly hour-long argument by Worrick Robinson, an attorney for Cory Batey. Robinson argued that the school’s culture of promiscuity and partying was to blame for his client’s actions. Attorneys for Brandon Vandenburg will deliver their closing arguments tomorrow. Court watchers expect jurors to begin deliberating by the end of the day.
