Former Gator charged with rape

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) - Teddy Dupay, who played on Florida's
runner-up team in the 2000 NCAA basketball tournament, was charged
with beating and raping a woman last month at a Utah ski resort.
Dupay acknowledged in court documents that he and the woman got "a little rough" but denied rape. The woman said she and Dupay
had a two-year relationship, although it was not clear whether they
were still a couple when police were called to a Deer Valley lodge
June 19.
The 29-year-old Dupay was charged last week with felony rape,
aggravated sexual assault and aggravated kidnapping. He is to be
arraigned Monday in 3rd District Court.
Investigators say the woman had two fractured ribs, bruises on
her arm, shoulder and thigh a swollen left eye and scratches on her
back. The woman said Dupay kicked and punched her repeatedly before
she was raped, according to court documents.
Dupay could not immediately be reached for comment and did not
have an attorney on record to represent him as of Thursday.
Dupay played three seasons at Florida before he was dismissed
from the team before his senior season. Evidence surfaced that he
asked another student to place bets for him on Gator basketball
games. Dupay was never charged criminally with gambling violations.
