Former WEWS Sports Anchor Terry Brooks Found Not Guilty of Rape, Kidnapping

Former WEWS sports anchor Terry Brooks has been found not guilty on all charges of rape and kidnapping in connection with a tryst he had with a 22-year-old college student.

“It’s very unfortunate that I had to endure this, that my wife had to endure this — that these lies even reached this point,” said Brooks, who took a leave of absence from the Cleveland ABC-affiliate in August. “Justice was served today.”

Brooks had been accused of raping the young woman at his house after the two were out drinking at a local bar.  He was indicted in August on four counts of rape, four counts of attempted rape, and one count of kidnapping.  The jury reached their verdict on Thursday afternoon. Read more

Trial of Former WEWS Sports Anchor Terry Brooks Begins in Cleveland

The trial of former WEWS sports anchor Terry Brooks began today in Cleveland.  Brooks appeared in court to face charges of rape and kidnapping  brought against him by a 22-year-old college student.

Brooks is accused of bringing the young woman back to his house after the two had drinks at a local bar and repeatedly raping her.  The incident occurred in September of 2009.

WEWS placed Brooks on a leave of absence in August after a grand jury indicted him on rape and kidnapping charges.  At the time, Brooks denied the charges, saying emphatically, “I am innocent.”

Brooks, a graduate of the University of Chattanooga, joined WEWS in 2007 after stops at WLTX in Columbia, SC and News14 Carolina in Raleigh, NC.

WEWS, a Scripps-owned ABC-affiliate, covered the trial today with Ron Regan reporting.
