Lindenwood University Weightlifter Charged With Sodomy


A Lindenwood University weightlifter is facing sodomy charges for sexually abusing a male victim in a campus dorm.

According to Fox2now, the charges filed at the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office allege 18-year-old Blace M. Eckols of performing a sexual act on a male victim who was under the influence of alcohol.

Eckols was charged on Wednesday with three counts of first-degree sodomy or attempted sodomy, and was later bailed out by a relative for $50,000, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

“Eckols advised that he thought that the victim was ‘out cold’ as he pulled the victim’s pants down,” the statement reads.

Meanwhile, Eckols’ attorney, Jeffrey Goldfarb, said his client’s side of the story should be considered as well.

“There are two sides to every story and we feel that when his side comes out, how (the case) was filed was not how it really occurred, and we intend to take it to trial,” he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

In a similar incident last month, a University of Idaho football player, Kyree Curington, was arrested on allegations of raping a fellow student within one of the school dorms.
