A man accused of being a serial rapist was once a star athlete at the University of Illinois. Investigators say 38-year-old Stephen Lamont Feagin sexually assaulted victims over a span of 15 years, starting when he was attending school in Champaign-Urbana.

Feagin had been a star running back for the Illini team in the early 1990s. Police say he sexually assaulted three victims in Illinois and one in Pompano Beach, Fla.
