Report: Franklin contacted Vandy case victim


A new defense filing in the case involving rape charges against four former Vanderbilt players claims that current Penn State coach James Franklin contacted the alleged victim shortly after the incident, according to a report in The Tennessean.
   who left Vandy for the same jobs at Penn State this winter -- talked to the alleged victim four days after the rape during a medical examination.
   Franklin and Galt told the victim "that they cared about her because she assisted them with recruiting," according to the filing.
   Franklin, when reached by phone on Tuesday, repeatedly said he was "not interested in talking."
   The other former players charged with rape in the case are Cory Batey, Brandon Eric Banks and Jaborian McKenzie.
