Calif. Man Pleads Not Guilty In Vanderbilt Rape Case Involving Former Player From Md.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A California man indicted in connection with a rape investigation involving former Vanderbilt football players–including one from Md.– has pleaded not guilty to charges of evidence tampering.

The Tennessean reports attorney Bernie McEvoy entered the plea Wednesday for 20-year-old Miles Joseph Finley of Bermuda Dunes, Calif. Finley’s next court date is Dec. 5.

Finley and 20-year-old Joseph Dominick Quinzio of Palm Desert, Calif., were indicted in August on charges of tampering with electronic evidence pertaining to the investigation.

Charged with aggravated rape are 19-year-old Cory Batey of Nashville, Tenn.; 20-year-old Brandon Vandenburg of Indio, Calif.; 19-year-old Brandon Banks of Brandywine, Md.; and 19-year-old Jaborian “Tip” McKenzie of Woodville, Miss.

All four have pleaded not guilty. They were dismissed from the team and are no longer students.
