Among those who testified were former teammate Keiton Page, current teammate Brian Williams, two witnesses who attended the party and Alex Williams, Darrell's mother.
Williams is facing four counts of rape by instrumentation and one count of sexual battery, stemming from an incident that took place at an off-campus party on Dec. 12, 2010, where two women allege that Williams groped them and stuck his hands down their pants without consent.
The defense also called former OSU basketball player Jarred Shaw, under subpoena, but Shaw was not present. Throughout testimonies, Shaw's name came up as someone who was at the party and potentially could have been mistaken for Williams.
During an emotional testimony, Alex Williams spoke of a challenging childhood for Darrell in Chicago, with no father in his life. Fighting tears, she praised her son for remaining out of trouble, keeping a clean criminal record and making it out of Chicago despite the allures of its streets.
