The woman who accused former Baylor defensive end Sam Ukwuachu of raping her in 2013 has hired a law firm experienced in Title IX litigation to represent her in potential civil litigation.

The woman, a former Baylor soccer player, hired John Clune and Chris Ford of Hutchinson Black and Cook of Denver on Friday. The firm also represents Erica Kinsman, the woman who accused former Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston of sexually assaulting her in 2012.

Ukwuachu, who transferred from Boise State to Baylor in 2013, was convicted of sexual assault on Aug. 21 by a jury at Texas District 54 Court in Waco. Judge Matt Johnson sentenced him to 180 days in county jail, 10 years of felony probation and 400 hours of community service.
