Steven Feagin, Accused of Rape in Pompano Beach, Convicted of Rape in Illinois
A former Deerfield Beach High School football star was convicted today of the rape of a woman who was attending the University of Illinois, where he also played football. It took the jury less than an hour to find him guilty.
DNA evidence from three separate sexual assaults in Illinois matched a 2007 rape case in Pompano Beach, he explained. All three Illinois cases were students who were assaulted near the UI campus, so he guessed that the culprit was an Illinois student from Florida -- he waded through more than 37,000 names to find the Florida students and came up with a list of 54 possible suspects.
